Exploring Spiritual Treasure

Spiritual treasure can be defined by the holy moments that shape the journey of our lives. Discover your own spiritual treasures with us!

On January 24th, the Exploring Spiritual Treasure class begins a new semester.

If you are new to this parish, curious about the Episcopal Church, or eager to know more about how the Christian tradition can help shape your life, this class is for you! The class will meet via Zoom from 9:15 a.m. to 10:15 a.m. on Sunday mornings.

We will be discussing presentations prepared by Heavenly Rest clergy and members of this church community.

Please contact Mother Corrie Cabes (ccabes@heavenlyrestabilene.org) if you are interested in participating in the class or have any questions. High school students are also welcome to join.

If you are looking to find community, we look forward to having you!
