SPRED is a program in which persons who are developmentally-disabled
come together with a spiritual friend/catechist to share a one-to-one
relationship and form with others a small faith community.
SPRED fosters and nourishes spiritual and personal growth by helping those with developmental
disabilities discover God’s action and presence in their lives.

the Word of God. We have two family SPRED Masses's per year
