Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, is pleased to invite prospective students and their guests to attend its 2005 Fall Visitation Weekend, to be held Oct. 6-8 on the Seminary campus. The weekend is designed for those who are college age or older.

More than 30 representatives from organizations involved in nearly all aspects of life in the Seminary community will be present to share information and answer questions.

The Women’s Information Session on Saturday morning has proven to be very popular and beneficial for wives, fiancées and girlfriends of prospective pastoral ministry students.
