Founded in 1965 as the third LCMS congregation in St. Catharines, Resurrection Lutheran Church became the first home of Concordia Lutheran Theological Seminary in St. Catharines. The congregation has maintained close ties with the seminary which is now located just up the street. Seminary students serve field work duties in the congregation under the supervision of its pastor. The current pastor also serves as an associate chaplain to Brock University. University students often find their church home away from home at Resurrection. A regular hour for private confession and absolution is scheduled on Thursdays, 4-5pm. The pastor is available to make other arrangements for penitents.
