The latest news from LTS!
LTS is sponsoring the creation of a historical marker to recognize the Wiggins Avenue seminary building, whose cornerstone was laid 75 years ago in 1947. This project has been led by retired Bishop Allan Grundahl.
“Joy and satisfaction, along with many memories,” Bishop Allan Grundahl reflected after a gathering of some 80 people on Saturday, September 10th to recognize the old Luther Seminary building at 212 Wiggins Avenue.
LTS is pleased to announce appointments for the “Our Classroom Is Western Canada: We Meet There In Mission” project. The Rev. Dr. Kayko Driedger Hesslein will serve as main facilitator and has been named as Associate Academic Dean for the duration of the project. Helping to coordinate and provide overall support is Mavis Hamilton, who has joined us as Executive Assistant to the President. Working with them in early stages is Denise Pawliuk, Project Assistant, an LTS student and diaconal candidate.
“Our Classroom Is Western Canada” is an effort to foster and support courses offered across Western Canada – serving people preparing for leadership in lay, deacon, and pastor roles, combined with a reorganization of LTS so that faculty and administration can serve from various places in the territory of the four Western synods of the ELCIC. The portion funded by grants to LTS from the Lilly Endowment run through August 2024. This project is an LTS venture, preparing us for a changing world, that will also open opportunities for study with our partner denominations in the STU and will feed our efforts to develop shared educational possibilities.
