Concordia Seminary to Begin 169th Academic Year

On Sunday, Sept. 2, at 4:00 p.m., Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, will begin its 169th academic year with a special worship service in The Chapel of St. Timothy and St. Titus on the Seminary campus. Dr. Dale A. Meyer, president of Concordia Seminary, will serve as preacher. The Seminary’s incoming class, expected to be in excess of 100 students, will also be present and sit as a group. The public is invited to attend.

The service will include the installation of two faculty members: Rev. Anthony Cook as associate professor of practical theology and director of educational technology, and Dr. Henry Rowold as mission professor of practical theology. Rev. Paul Philp also will be installed as admissions counselor. The installation of Michael Flynn as senior philanthropic advisor will take place at a later date.

The dedication of renovated office facilities in Sieck Hall and Loeber Hall will be included in the service. Following the service, those in attendance are invited to tour these facilities and enjoy refreshments as they visit with staff members who serve in the renovated facilities.

During the preceding week, new students will complete an orientation process and register for course work. The orientation process also provides opportunities for new students and their families to become better acquainted, which includes a “Field Day” consisting of men’s and women’s sports activities, games for children and a community-wide barbeque.
