meeting with grade-level catechists and core catechist once a month. You
can also attend a comprehensive "Getting Started" workshop put
on by the Chicago Office of Catechesis. New catechists support each other
in monthly formation meetings. Call Kevin Cody for details.

Through the Church, Christ
reaches out to ALL people. SPRED is a program sponsored by the Lemont
Catholic Community. It is a faith-sharing group for people (youth and
adults) with developmental or physical disabilities. Allowing for the
exploration in faith, people (both volunteers and members) deepen their
relationship with the God who calls each by name. SPRED is a group-based
ministry. Volunteers are needed to assist with hospitality and discussion.
