Welcome Visitors to
the SPRED Resource Center at
Queen of Apostles Parish in Chicago.
In SPRED, we celebrate coming together in faith and friendship.
SPRED (Special Religious Development) is a program, created in the Archdiocese of Chicago, which trains and guides parishes to provide faith formation to persons with developmental disabilities and/or learning problems and become integrated into parish life. This is accomplished through small communities of faith at the parish level.
This website was created to provide information to those interested in offering spiritual enrichment to persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
The SPRED program at Queen of Apostles offers the opportunity to grow in faith to young adults and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities in three small faith communities.
