SPRED Ministry (currently not active)

SPRED is a network of services designed to assist persons with developmental disabilities and/or learning problems, ages 6 thru life, to become integrated into parish assemblies of worship through the process of education in their faith.  

We meet on the 1st Saturday of each month from 8-10am for the Catechist to prepare for the sessions with our friends.  These are held in the parish conference room.  

The sessions with our friends in the Old White Church are held from 6:30-9:15pm on the 2nd and 3rd Wednesday every month, Sept thru April.  

The Catechist must be at least 18 years old and have a background check ran through the Archdiocese of Chicago.  They must also complete 6 hours of special training.  This training is held on Saturdays from 9am – 3pm, at different locations throughout the year.  Ongoing training is always available.  

An ideal candidate for this ministry would have patience, reliability and compassion.

Due to the nature of our program, we ask for at least a two year commitment because our friends bond with their Catechist.  All of our sessions held with our friends are one on one and in a comfortable learning atmosphere.  We close sharing a light meal.  

This ministry will make you grow stronger in your faith and more thankful for the gifts you have.  This ministry will also give you the opportunity to use those gifts.
