The parish SPRED community is a small community of faith who enter into friendship following the standards of the SPRED Ministry under the direction of Rev. James McCarthy through the Archdiocese of Chicago. Accomplished through meaningful one-on-one relationships within the group, sharing of life experiences, quiet moments and with the proclamation of the Word, the community responds in praise and thanksgiving, aware that God is in our midst.
Saint Mary Parish welcomes young adults over 21 years of age to our SPRED community. Catechists gather weekly September to May, welcoming our “friends” bi-monthly. 
“Rooted in the rich soil of our faith, love nourishes and connects us. Time allows us the capability of understanding how valuable God’s love is.”
Through the continued generosity and kindness of the parishioners of Saint Mary, the SPRED Ministry flourishes today.
