| SPRED dinner is April 13
SPRED The Word XXII, the annual fundraiser for the Special Religious Education Department of the Diocese of Oakland, is planned for April 13 at St. Felicitas Parish in San Leandro.
The liturgy begins at 4:30 p.m., followed by dinner and dancing in the parish hall. The church is at 1662 Manor Blvd., San Leandro.
SPRED assists parishes in the Diocese of Oakland to reach out and integrate children, teens and adults with special needs into the parish family.
In more than a dozen parishes, more than two dozen programs involve dedicated volunteers assisting people with autism, intellectual disabilities, severe cerebral palsy and severe epilepsy to grow spiritually among friends, receive on going faith formation and participate in the liturgical and community life of the church. Programs are offered in both English and Spanish.
More information on the fundraiser, including how to purchase tickets, will be available at www.oakdiocese.org/education/spred/spred-the-word.
