SPRED - Special Religious Development
What is SPRED?
SPRED (Special Religious Development) is a small faith community in a parish which includes children or adults with developmental or cognitive challenges. The SPRED method or program is designed to meet their spiritual needs through special one on one relationships with catechists and small group gatherings. It provides a framework via which they are integrated more fully into the mainstream of parish life, including faith formation, celebrating the sacraments and participating in the Liturgy.
