SPRED the Word Fundraiser
April 29th, 2017
SPRED the Word is an annual celebration that begins with a SPRED Liturgy followed by a Dinner-Dance Fundraiser. It began twenty-four years ago as an appreciation dinner for SPRED catechists and is now a grand event for SPRED families, catechists and Friends while fundraising for SPRED’s annual program expenses. SPRED the Word has been celebrated in many parishes throughout the years from St. Isidore in Danville to St. Lawrence O’Toole in Oakland, St. Augustine in Pleasanton, and St.Felicitas in San Leandro to name a few.
