Postal Strike Affects Financial Support

While the postal workers and Canada Post are bargaining, there are ways to donate to Concordia Lutheran Seminary.
  • OnLine: you can make donations anytime through CanadaHelps.
  • Pre-Authorized Debits: download the forms here. Fill them in and return them to us by fax, by email (scanned images), or drop them off at the Seminary.
  • Through your local LCC church: drop a donation designated for the Seminary into the offering plate or give the donation to the church Treasurer. It will be forwarded through the District office to the Seminary.
  • Come in to the Seminary with your donation. We love to meet with donors and there may even be a cup of coffee available!

    About the headline: AFFECT versus EFFECT

    I understand that the CAUSE (the Postal lock-out) will have an AFFECT (no mail-delivery of donations).

    However, I hope and pray that the blog-entry will EFFECT (to sway, to make a difference, to have an outcome) of increased usage of "alternative" methods of donation.

    P.S. If the suggestion is to pass donations to the financial officers of an individual congregation, how are those officers expected to "forward" the donations to the District Office? Courier? Obviously, they cannot use Canada Post! Will they just "hold" the donations, until the lock-out situation is resolved?

May 29, 2020 Sacred Convocation

MARK THE DATE: Concordia Lutheran Seminary, Edmonton Sacred Convocation Friday, May 29, 2020 7:00 p.m. MDT Live ONLINE at:
Watch from home as SEVEN new pastoral candidates receive their first Call into ministry, and TWO vicar/interns are placed for service. We thank God for His marvelous blessing upon these men and their families, and upon His Church here in Canada, as Lutheran servants and congregations are connected through this assignment. Graduating students will also receive their degrees and theological diplomas.
Honoree Fran Wershler will receive the Faith in Life recognition. Nearly two-thirds ($650,000) of the funding needed to train these pastors and vicar/interns comes from congregations and individuals across the Church. Thank you for your critical role as a donor to train these pastors (and deacons). Because we are mission minded, a tithe of our convocation donations will also support the LCC mission work in Southeast Asia, where four of our graduates s…

First Annual Research Forum

On September 11 CLS promoted its first Annual Research Forum. Faculty and a guest presenter discussed the Theological research they completed in the past year.
A graduate school's vocation - as it is for any university - is carried out on a triangular basis, with each point supporting and sustaining the others:
· Teaching (in the sense of formal education)
· Research
· Extension
As an academic place, our school is also a place, then, where knowledge is revisited, built and shared in formal and informal education.
Our seminary supports each professor's research by allocating time and means for formal research. Each year, research projects are received and approved; completed projects are shared with the larger community; and final results of each project are evaluated for publication in various ways: either as research articles in specialized journals, or as a doctoral thesis, or as a book.
The inaugural forum’s guest presenter was Rev. Mark Sander, pastor in Mannsville, AB, who sha…
