Watch the Assignment of Calls service.
Call Day at Concordia Seminary is the day when second year students learn their vicarage church assignments (a one-year internship at an LCMS church anywhere in the U.S.) and fourth year students learn their first call assignments. Deaconess students may also learn their deaconess internship assignments or diaconal call assignments on this day as well. These assignments are announced and celebrated during two worship services on Call Day.
There are two services on Call Day:

Pastors commit their whole lives to serving congregations like yours. They do it gladly, but this commitment starts with seminary education. Today, Seminary support comes primarily through individuals, not through corporate Synod. Three out of every four new pastors placed today will graduate with debt of $39,000 or more. You can help spread the Gospel by making a tax-deductible donation "for future pastors" to Concordia Seminary.
