Special Religious Education


"To integrate people with developmental disabilities into the faith and life of the Church."


SPRED assists parishes in the Diocese of Oakland reach out and integrate children, teens and adults with special needs into the parish family. Volunteer catechists play a vital role in assisting individuals with autism, intellectual disabilities, severe cerebral palsy and severe epilepsy so they may grow spiritually among friends, receive ongoing faith formation and participate in the liturgical and community life of the Church.
