The Milwaukee SPRED Regional Training Center

Our SPRED Regional Training Center (SPRED RTC) provides training and resources for the SPRED community in Milwaukee and the surrounding area.  We have a SPRED field worker who develops new parish SPRED programs and mentors existing SPRED programs. Our team of SPRED trainers provides workshops in the SPRED model. We are affiliated with the SPRED Center of Chicago, where SPRED originated in the 1960s, and who we have been working with since 2003.  Our SPRED RTC aligns with the SPRED Center of Chicago to ensure the same quality program and standards.


The Center Provides:

Support for new parishes starting SPRED groups.  A SPRED field worker will provide a series of exploratory SPRED meetings, animations and mentoring to get new groups started.

Training in the SPRED model

An observation site

SPRED curriculum (developed by the Chicago SPRED Center every year)

Yearly SPRED enrichment

SPRED Liturgy Workshops

On-going mentoring and support of SPRED groups

Affiliation and collaboration with the national SPRED Center and its standards



Our model SPRED site is at SS. Peter and Paul Parish. Observation of a SPRED session is possible using the observation booth at that site.  SPRED catechists are required to observe a SPRED session or two as part of their training.  Parents, caregivers and others are invited to observe as well.  Click here to see the observation schedule.
