Experience a week, several weeks, or a month of Sabbath rest, renewal, and transformation during the month of June! The Summer Spirituality Series at the School of Applied Theology (a GTU affiliate) can stand alone as a short Sabbatical experience, or it can be an opportunity for homecoming and renewal for those who have attended SAT in the past and are ready for another holistic Sabbath experience.

Want to learn more about the fascinating and colorful world of liturgical vesture? Come to the gallery and chat with Khouria Krista West, an ecclesiastical tailor of Eastern Orthodox vestments based in Portland, Orgeon. Committeed to continuing the millennia-old tradition of high-quality vestments into the 21st century, Kh. Krista will be joining us remotely from her tailor's workshop, giving a behind-the-scenes tour of the space in which moden vestments are still hand-crafted to this day.
