CATHARINES, Ontario – Concordia Lutheran Theological Seminary (CLTS) is inviting all those considering pursuing theological education to visit them at a series of seminary-experience events this spring.

“Have you ever thought about becoming a pastor—or has someone told you you should think about it?” promotional materials ask. “Do you love Christ and His church, and wonder whether you could serve Him in pastoral ministry or other theological vocations? Are you interested in theology, and desire to learn more about Christian faith, Scriptures, and the hows and whys of Lutheran doctrine. Do you want to know more about practicalities of how to become a pastor, and whether this vocation could be for you? Then mark the date!”

CLTS invites students from universities and high schools to come for a visit, to get a taste of what seminary life is like, and hear more about study opportunities. University students (and those who have already graduated) are invited to visit Tuesday, February 21. On Thursday, March 16, the doors swing open for highschoolers.

Visitors will get a chance to sit in classes and experience first-hand how seminary education works. You’ll also have a chance to talk with professors and local pastors, receive information about the practicalities of planning pre-seminary studies, and ask questions concerning work in the service of the church.

The seminary will arrange room and a board for one night, and even take you out to see the beautiful Niagara area. All you need to do is let us know you’re coming and make your way to St. Catharines. Those interested in attending are encouraged to contact Professor Esko Murto at emurto@brocku.ca.
