A message from President Harrison -
Thank you to everyone for your patience. We have been working extensively with the post-secondary educational sector in Saskatchewan and with provincial authorities. We have also attended closely to the public health directives in the areas that we serve, including the four provinces and the territories in Canada’s North and West.
We recognize that these are challenging times for everyone. LTS has been blessed by being well-positioned to approach this crisis. We have been teaching online and hybrid (combination classroom and online) courses for some years, now. We have also been organizing ourselves in such a way as to be able to respond to shifting circumstances.
In light of all recent developments across Canada and in Saskatchewan, we have decided that all courses in the Fall and Winter Terms of 2020/21 will be offered by remote delivery. While this choice is subject to review, should the situation change significantly, we believe that health considerations for faculty, staff, and students must be our primary concern. Any courses that cannot reasonably be offered electronically will be offered at a more suitable time. Any students who have questions about courses are invited to contact Colleen Rickard, LTS Registrar.
STU LIBRARY SERVICES

A Letter from President William Harrison
March 16, 2020
Dear Members of the LTS Community,
Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, who walks with us through these difficult times.
You will receive multiple communications from LTS in the coming days and weeks, as we respond to
We wish to assure you all of our concern and prayers for those affected by COVID-19, whether as a result of illness, financial suffering, or social isolation. You are in our hearts.
We have officially moved all classes fully into electronic format for the winter term of 2020. As most of you know, we are fortunate in that we already teach extensively through electronic systems, so this is a
relatively small adjustment for us.
Thank you for your support in the important ministry of forming theological leaders for the church.

President, Lutheran Theological Seminary

2020 LTS STUDY CONFERENCE - ON THE MOVE - Cancelled
An update from LTS about COVID-19 and the 2020 Study Conference
In light of developments around COVID-19, we announce the decision to cancel our 2020 Study Conference set for April 28-30. There will be a future event to honour the transition from the current seminary building to our new home in the St. Andrew’s College building. We are also postponing the “Decolonizing Theology,” lecture which will be rescheduled for a later date.
Although this decision is a disappointing one, we feel that protecting the health and well-being of all our staff, faculty, students, supporters, alumni and communities is of utmost importance. God bless you all as you help to protect and support the elderly and more vulnerable members of society by practicing social distancing.
