SPRED

Here at St. Clement, since 1988, the Parish has hosted one of 19 SPRED Centers in the Diocese of Oakland. A SPRED center provides ongoing education in faith and religious services for children, teens, and adults with developmental disabilities, such as autism, cerebral palsy and intellectual challenges.

SPRED

SPRED stands for Special Religious Education Development in the Diocese of Oakland, which provides training, supervision, materials and support to parishes in Alameda and Contra Costa counties with SPRED centers. St. Clement center serves persons ages 22 years and older.

SPRED’s goal is to provide appropriate catechetical, liturgical, and sacramental experiences, which will advance the integration of persons with developmental disabilities into the sorshipping communith of their parish. SPRED believes persons with significant developmental disabilities have a place in the total life of their parish community, to share their God-given gifts.

SPRED provides the faith community and the environment in which the Word of God is proclaimed, shared and celebrated. This successful method of catechesis leads all members of a SPRED community, catechists and friends alike, to a sense of the sacred, a sense a personal God, a sense of church as community. This may be the ministry for you. The necessary training will be provided through the SPRED office. The single requisite is a desire to share and grow in faith with others.

SPRED invites adult volunteers with a desire to share their faith and friendship with a person who has special needs.
