Seminary Guild

Judy Zastrow addresses Harvest Day 2008

A word from the Seminary Guild president ...

The Concordia Seminary Guild was organized in 1978, one year after the seminary opened.

Guild Purpose

STIMULATE deeper and more active members in congregations.
PROVIDE information concerning needs of the students and seminary. Keep churches informed of guild activities.
CO-OPERATE with the seminary in providing needed  services for the school, students, and families as is within our means and abilities.


is open to all women and men in Lutheran Church-Canada, and The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod. Membership is $5.00 per year, from 1 May 1 - 30 April 30. Our membership has been as high as 1100 members.


There are two meetings per year at the seminary. Guild Day is held in April, and Harvest Day is in October. A luncheon follows the meetings right at the seminary. There are four executive meetings per year and three newsletter mailings.

Contact Person

This is the communicator/liaison between the guild and the local congregations. It is the Contact Person who works on getting memberships, and the distribution of the newsletter.


Suggested projects our presented to the guild at our January executive meeting, and presented to the assembly at the Guild Day meeting.

Food Pantry

We have a pantry at the seminary to help the students and families. We encourage donations of groceries, frozen meats, and cash to purchase things not donated. Suggestions for donations would be Thanksgiving, Harvest Day, LWML Rallies, and Christmas socials. The Concordia Seminary Student Association has set up a website to communicate the latest and greatest need for food or clothing.

Any way you can help is greatly appreciated.

Blessings, Peace & Love
Judy Zastrow
Concordia Seminary Guild President
