SPRED is a ministry whose mission is to help developmentally disabled children and adults feel the Spirit of Christ, and develop a sense of the Sacred and God. Participants enter the SPRED program at approximately age 6 and continue for all of their adult life.
St. Linus’ SPRED group is made up of children ages 6 to 10. The program is presented by volunteers who help prepare our friends for their First Holy Communion. Do you know a child with disabilities who would benefit from our program?
We can also help place children older than 10 and adults with disabilities in other churches with a SPRED ministry for their appropriate age group. Do you know someone who would like to join us in our Spiritual practice?
They do not have to belong to St. Linus; they just need to belong to a parish. The children meet on alternate Tuesdays from 6:30 to 8 pm.
Please call the rectory at 708-422-2400 for more information, and leave your name and phone number.
