LCMS Worship provides propers for celebrating the Anniversary of the Augsburg Confession, which falls on Sunday, June 25, 2017. The confession of faith was presented by various German rulers and free cities to Holy Roman Emperor Charles V on June 25, 1530, at the Diet of Augsburg.

Lutheran Service Book lists the anniversary as a commemoration, and therefore it provides no propers. Lutheran Worship listed it as a festival, and LCMS Worship has received several requests to help celebrate the occasion.

LCMS Worship suggests an Introit, Collect of the Day, Old Testament Reading, Psalm, Epistle, Verse, Holy Gospel, Hymn of the Day and Preface.
