CLTS Vicars’ Dinner with the LWMLC
ST. CATHARINES, Ontario – Lutheran Women’s Missionary League–Canada (LWMLC) hosted its annual vicars’ dinner for students of Concordia Lutheran Theological Seminary (St. Catharines, Ontario) on March 24, 2017.
The dinner was held at Christ Lutheran Church in St. Catharines. LWMLC President Iris Barta spoke on the multifaceted work of the women’s missionary league, and presented each vicar with a gift bag of LWMLC materials illustrating the depth of resources the organization provides the Canadian church.
CLTS has one regular vicar available for placement this year: Matthew Fenn, a native of Windsor. He will be joined by his wife Laurin, who is studying for a Master of Theological Studies degree at the seminary, along with the rest of their family.
The dinner also welcomed colloquy student Rev. Isaac Paik, an ordained Presbyterian minister (originally from Korea), who is in full-time studies this year in preparation for entering the ministerium of Lutheran Church–Canada. Rev. Paik and family will experience a mini-vicarage this summer as part of his colloquy process.
