SPRED – Special Religious Education

Faith Formation and Inclusion for Children and Adults with Developmental Disabilities.

SPRED  (Special Religious Development) created by the Archdiocese of Chicago is a unique program offering spiritual enrichment, for persons with developmental disabilities and/or learning problems including autism and ADHD. With the support of the SPRED Agency, a parish welcomes these children and adults into small faith community where they form friendships with people from the parish who journey with them in faith. SPRED helps each participant to know God and prepare them for full participation in the sacramental life of the parish.

There are four particular age groups in the SPRED Archdiocese program with each parish focusing on a certain age group. The groups are: 6-10 year old children; 11-16 year old teens; 17-21 year old young people; and adults (22 years and older). The SPRED program at St. Jane offers the opportunity to young adults and adults.   Our group consists of eight adult volunteer and seven friends.  Through prayer, activities, stories, Scripture reading, song and a simple meal, our catechists’ help our special friends learn and understand about our faith.

If you are a parent with a special needs child or adult we welcome you to further explore this unique program.  For additional information please contact our rectory and ask to speak to Fr. Cronin or Deacon Ron.

We are also in need of volunteers.  Please note that You Do Not Need Experience or feel that you must have prior knowledge of what this is about.  The only requirement is that you are over 21 years of age and have a love for working with people!  Believe me when I say, SPRED is a very worthwhile ministry where the rewards far outweigh the benefits. To learn more please contact the rectory and speak to Deacon Ron.

Summer is a great time to relax and reflect on what it might be that God is calling us to. Ministry is not just about doing. It is all about hearts touching hearts, hands reaching out to hands, prayers that bring hope to the hopeless. Knowing that we all have a part to play in God’s plan of Salvation in bringing about His Kingdom here on earth.

Our Hungry & Homeless Brown Bag group aside from making monthly sandwiches, has become involved with an activity called “We Care Bags”.

It is a 1 gallon zip lock bag containing snacks and assorted items in “Travel Size”  such as; chemical hand-warmer packets, winter gloves, lip balm, wet wipes, tissues, soap, toothbrush & toothpaste kits, travel size first aid kit, combs, shampoo, deodorant, shave cream, disposable shavers, granola bars, crackers, candy, cookies, pudding… the list is endless.


Once collected and sorted they are placed in a bags.  We ask that all items donated be Travel Size in order for everything to fit in a zip lock bag.   The “We Care Bags” will be handed out to the homeless as our teams travel throughout the city.  A special collection box will be set up at the front of the church to accept donations.

If you have any questions or would like to be part of our Hungry & Homeless group please contact Deacon Ron at 773-585-2617. Deacon Ron
