Since the ultimate goal of SPRED is that people with learning difficulties will assume their rightful place in the parish community, liturgies which are inclusive are prepared twice a year while at St Philomena’s where the Training Centre is situated these liturgies are once a month. Our next SPRED Mass is on 1st November 2015 at 10.45am.
