Special Needs Religious Education
SPRED (Special Religious Development)
SPRED is a small faith community at Christ King (part of our tri-parish cluster) which includes children or adults with developmental or cognitive challenges. The SPRED method or program is designed to meet their spiritual needs through special one on one relationships with catechists and small group gatherings. It provides a framework via which they are integrated more fully into the mainstream of parish life, including faith formation, celebrating the sacraments and participating in the Mass.
Currently, children between the ages of 6-10 with developmental or cognitive challenges can participate in our SPRED program at Christ King.
For more information on joining , or to inquire about SPRED groups for older children and adults, please contact Christ King parish chairperson Eileen Wingenter (414-607-7008) and visit spredmilwaukee.org.
