YOUTH GROUP INFORMATION

 

St. Peter Damian Church SPRED Program

SPRED is a Faith Formation program for children and adults with special needs.

Small faith communities welcome these individuals and offer the promise of inclusion in the sacramental life of the parish.

Every parish in the Archdiocese of Chicago is called to offer appropriate faith formation for persons of all ages with special needs.  SPRED is the answer to that call. Parishes work in collaboration with one another. A group of parishes form a network of SPRED programs to respond to both children and adults with developmental and/or cognitive disabilities.  

St. Peter Damian is part of this mission.  A SPRED group for children 6-10 years old will begin at our parish in the fall.  This group will meet every other Thursday evening from 6:00-7:30pm in the chapel lower halls.  This first class is scheduled to meet on Thursday, October 11th.

Ministry Schedules

Action Plan
MISSION ACTION PLAN

The people of St. Peter Damian Parish are on a lifelong faith journey.  Every day we will place our trust in a living God our Savior has revealed to us. His loving providence will be an integral part of our everyday life.  As His disciples we will allow the Holy Spirit to form us in the ways of the Word of God entrusted to the Church. We will be serving our brothers and sisters with more compassion and love. We will be celebrating His real presence in the Eucharist with more enthusiasm. We will be spending more of our personal and family time for prayer, the Holy Scriptures, and spiritual growth. We aspire to lead a life of virtue so as to evangelize more effectively, witness more courageously, and share the Gospel with more joy.

Spiritual growth is our priority. Invoking the strength of God’s grace, we will be steadfastly engaging all ages into ongoing catechesis within Lifelong Faith Formation. To know who Christ is, we will commit to all aspects of Catholic faith in a holistic, cross-generational and comprehensive way. Faith Formation will embrace our entire personal development:  human, intellectual, and spiritual. Being continuously formed into intentional disciples, we will make every effort to extend more biblical studies, service projects, ministries and events for all ages, training programs, interdisciplinary learning, and above all worship in truth and spirit. 

Giving glory to God makes us fully alive. We will be an intensely alive community sharing God’s gifts. We will be on fire to “go and make disciples of all nations.” (Matthew 28: 19-20) We will proclaim the greatness of the Lord and deeply rejoice in all God’s blessings. We will passionately share time, talent, and treasure. We will be hospitable and inviting. We will appreciate diversity among people. By Jesus’ Gospel, we are the light of the world and the salt of the earth. We will be fully alive in Christ and in our community.

We realize that this path will be challenging, but we will always remember the words of St. Peter Damian, our parish Patron: “Do not be depressed. Do not let your weakness make you impatient. Instead, let the serenity of your spirit shine through your face. Let the joy of your mind burst forth. Let words of thanks break from your lips.”
