On Tuesday, January 6, 2009, The Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia (LTSP) will be celebrating the Feast of the Epiphany at 7:00 pm and afterwards hosting a special reception for Mark Mummert, seminary musician at LTSP from 1990 to 2008 and now organist at Christ the King Lutheran Church in Houston, Texas. Three of Mr. Mummert's former students, Jennifer Baker-Trinity, Valerie LeFever Hughes, and John Weit will be providing musical leadership. The Rev. Martin Seltz, music and worship editor for Augsburg Fortress Press, will preside, assisted by Profs. Melinda Quivik and Timothy J. Wengert (preaching). All are welcome to join the seminary community for this special service.
Many of Mr. Mummert's own musical settings will be featured in this worship service along with special choirs. Students, teachers, staff and alumni/ae of LTSP are encouraged to attend along with any and all of their friends. Those who wish to sing in the choir, please e-mail John Weit (firstname.lastname@example.org). The choir will assemble at 6:00 pm in the chapel for rehearsal.

Airy section of Philadelphia. Ample free parking on campus is available in the Brossman parking lot, located behind the chapel.
