Little Shepherd of the Hills Episcopal Church

Little Shepherd in the Hills Episcopal Church is the oldest spiritual center in Crestone, having been a presence since 1885. You can enter at any time for a moment of quiet contemplation, to admire the simple altar or marble baptismal fount, or attend service on the first Sunday of every month. Originally, services were held in the old schoolhouse and were presided over by a circuit vicar. The current location is a log cabin built in the 1900s and donated to the Diocese in 1949. The chapel is dedicated to Lady Julian of Norwich, a 14th-century English mystic.
