By Faith: Honoring and Celebrating Suomi Seminary

September 20 8:00 am - September 22 5:00 pm EDT

From 1904 to 1958 Suomi Seminary served as the theological training institution for pastoral leadership in the Suomi Synod (Finnish Evangelical Lutheran Church). Over this period of time the Seminary prepared and graduated men called to serve in various capacities, both within and outside the Suomi Synod. What came to be called Suomi College and Seminary would grow and evolve through 1958 at which time the seminary was relocated.

The rich history of the Suomi Seminary and the lives and ministries of its graduates will be honored and celebrated September 21-22, 2019 on the campus of Finlandia University. This event,“By Faith,” will gather living alumni, family of alumni, the bishop of the Northern Great Lakes Synod (ELCA), other special guests, area clergy, synod and community members, and Finlandia students, faculty, and staff.

Details on the weekend plans as a whole will be announced closer to the event.
