Fall Visitation Weekend 2001

Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, is pleased to invite prospective students and their guests to attend its 2001 Fall Visitation Weekend to be held Oct. 11-13 on the Seminary campus. The weekend is designed for those of college age and older. It provides an effective means of learning more about life in the Concordia Seminary community and the preparation that leads to service as a pastor, missionary or chaplain in The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod.

Visitors will have the opportunity to worship with the Seminary community in The Chapel of St. Timothy and St. Titus, to visit classes and to tour the campus. Participants also will hear presentations on academic offerings, financial assistance, housing, resident field education, vicarage and the admission process. Guests also may wish to take advantage of the many recreational opportunities in the St. Louis area.

There is no charge to attend the Fall Visitation Weekend, and all meals and lodging are provided free of charge. Round-trip transportation to Concordia Seminary from the airport, bus station or train station also is provided free of charge.

A special women’s information session on Saturday morning has proven to be very popular and beneficial for wives, fiancees and girlfriends who attended past Fall Visitation Weekends.
