Concordia Lutheran Seminary

The Sacred Convocation

The Sacred Convocation takes place at the end of the academic year.

 After a service of praise and of hearing the word of God, candidates for vicarage are presented to receive their assignments to a congregation of Lutheran Church–Canada. These candidates will spend a year under the supervision of an LCC pastor gaining hands-on experience in the ministry. 

The convocation continues with the granting of degrees. Those entering the pastoral ministry receive the degree of Master of Divinity, indicating that they have completed their academic preparation for the holy ministry, followed by the granting of the Theological Diploma, which states that the candidate has been certified for the Holy Ministry in Lutheran Church-Canada. Immediately after receiving the theological diploma, the candidate receives his first call into the Holy Ministry.
