The archdiocesan program SPRED (Special Religious Education for the Developmentally Disabled) has been active at St. James since 1968. We provide 15 weeks of religious education to students aged 22 and older. These young adults participate in weekly classes, special events and preparation for the sacraments if needed. Classes meet on Wednesday evenings.

Adult volunteers are always needed! No special education or training is required, just a willing heart open and your willingness to share your time.
