How you can help prepare your loved one for attending a SPRED session:
Be Open to Communication
The Catechist partnered with your loved one may contact you to learn of an experience that their SPRED Friend has had, that ties in with the session. This is especially important for those who have difficulty in expressing themselves or are unable to speak.
The lived experiences that we share help us all become aware of God's presence in our lives.
Bring your loved one to church and sacrament as often as can be tolerated.
This builds familiarity with the rites and symbols and deepens the understanding of the mystery. SPRED Family Masses are available to respect and enhance the experience for a person with special needs. They are offered throughout the year and and at various locations in the Chicagoland area.
