Chapel

Did You Know?

  • The gym officially opened July 8, 1951. The Sunday afternoon celebration, attended by 1,500 people, featured speeches followed by an evening celebration with another 1,500 people in attendance to hear the Luther Choir and the RCMP Band.

  • Students admitted to Luther College are not required to be Lutheran or Christian. By welcoming students of all faiths and religious backgrounds, Luther College enjoys a richly diverse student body.

  • Through the A Time To Build capital campaign, we have added 46,897 square feet of space to Luther College High School, including the Semple gymnasium -  the largest high school gym in Regina.

  • The Tuck Shop for snacks was at the bottom of the south stairs going to what is now the cafeteria. The legendary beans in a cone were considered a healthier & cheaper alternative to what students purchased across the street at the Aintree.

  • In the late 1920's, during an in-house baseball tournament, Rex Schneider entered a team called "Prof Schneider's Battling Lions." This is the first hint that someday Luther teams would be known as the Lions.  

  • The first LIT was held on January 31, 1953. That year it was a one-day tournament involving sixteen teams from Southern Saskatchewan. All preliminary games were played cross court, two games at a time.

  • Do you know someone in Kindergarten to Grade 8 that would like to be part of the Luther Family? Encourage them to join the Future Luther Student program!

  • The choral tradition at Luther began in 1914. In addition to in-school performances, the choir has shared its ministry of music with many congregations across Canada and has performed regularly on local and national radio and television shows, at contests and festivals.

Greetings new students! Welcome back to the blog. This week I thought we’d give you an introduction to Chapel – what it is, when it is, and how it contributes to our school environment. Also, keep watching this space for more information on what’s happening at Luther this spring, including events, contests, and the chance to win some cool Luther gear!

Daily Chapel, which all Luther College students must attend, is a unique and strong tradition at Luther College. Chapel is a time when the whole school gathers together to worship, laugh, and learn. It forms the foundation upon which Luther College’s strong community of support and respect is built. Chapel contact varies from day to day and can include devotions led by students, faculty or clergy; motivational guest speakers; fun, community building activities, and music. Chapel is most often run by Pastor David Peterson, but is sometimes also run by students or faculty; guest speakers, or the SRC. Although chapel is an important part of Luther’s mission to provide “quality education in a Christian context,” it is welcoming of students and presenters from all faiths, and strives to promote inclusiveness through a variety of religious perspectives
