The Association for Clinical Pastoral Education Inc. (ACPE) equips clergy and lay leaders to offer competent and compassionate spiritual care to hospitalized people and their loved ones.

Because Texas Health is nonprofit and faith-based, CPE is a natural extension of our mission to improve the health and well-being of the people and communities we serve. At the heart of our mission is our love for people and our commitment to our sacred calling.
