A joy of this ministry are flexible options of a one-time commitment to serving and responding on a regular schedule — with so many activities, it is easy to find several ministries that interest you.

We are in the process of forming a SPRED group at St. John Vianney, and are looking for people 21 or older with a willingness to participate in friendship and faith-sharing with people with special needs. These catechists will use a symbolic approach to religious education that nurtures the whole person while bringing out the potential and giftedness of each. SPRED is a unique and meaningful way to experience religious education in an environment of friendship and welcome. Catechists are trained in the SPRED method and are part of a larger group guided by a leader catechist.
