Welcome to Concordia
Pastor's Desk Diary 2015
Concordia Lutheran Theological Seminary, St. Catharines, is again pleased to offer to the church the annual Pastor’s Desk Diary. It contains readings from the three-year and one-year lectionaries, including variants for the major Lutheran churches in Canada (LCC, ELCIC, WELS). The original work of Thrivent Financial in the US has been adapted to the Canadian calendar.
Although we can no longer offer the diary for free, the cost has been kept to $19 (plus shipping and GST) through the support of our advertisers. The diary is available through lulu.ca, an online, print-on-demand service. You may order your diary, which will be shipped directly to you, by searching on lulu.ca or following this direct link:
The base shipping cost in Canada is $5.99, but there are quantity discounts available if you can put an order together with other pastors or church workers. (It’s always worthwhile to check Lulu’s website for specials like discounts and free shipping.)
Please note that you must order this yourself. The seminary produces the diary as a service to the church and does not make a profit. Thus, our paid staff cannot be expected to order the diary for you. If you have difficulty with online ordering, please ask for help from a family member or parishioner.

Concerned about the Weather? Here's our simple rule: if Brock University are closed because of snow or bad weather, this seminary will be closed. Likewise, if the local school board closes the public schools because of adverse weather, we will officially close. We will do our best to notify students by e-mail and telephone, but please take responsibility for your own decision whether to drive in bad weather.
