About Call Day

Call Day at Concordia Seminary is the day when second-year students receive their vicarage church assignments (a one-year internship at an LCMS church anywhere in the U.S.) and fourth-year students discover their first call assignments. Deaconess students 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.

Share in the celebration by using hashtags #CallDay2019 and #CallDayWatchParty.
