The Service of Praise and Consecration
On Friday, May 17th at 7:30p.m. Concordia University Chicago will gather in the Chapel of Our Lord as a Christian community for The Service of Praise and Consecration -- Baccalaureate Worship where we will give thanks to our Lord for all our students who are graduating. Students receiving diplomas or certificates in a Church-professional program will present themselves before the Church, consecrating their hearts and hands for the Lord’s work. There will also be a recognition of vocation in which all our graduates will be asked to participate.
These words of encouragement and commitment will acknowledge that all vocations— in the church and the world-- come from our Lord and are lived in response to His love. All graduates will process, and need to line up in the Kretzmann hallway outside the chapel by 7:00 p.m. on Friday.
While those completing our Church-Worker Programs will be receiving certificates and are required to attend, all graduating students are encouraged to participate.
All family and friends are more than welcome to attend.
