SPRED Rivonia is very proud of Angel-Leigh Timothy who made her confirmation on Saturday, 8 October with the confirmation class of 2016. Angel has been attending SPRED since 2011 when the group started in Our Lady of Lourdes, Rivonia and has made her first confession, first Holy Communion and now her confirmation.
We thank Auxiliary Bishop, Duncan Tsoke and our parish priest, Fr Peter Doherty for the beautiful Mass. We congratulate her parents, sister and god-parents on this joyous occasion.
SPRED is an organisation that supports the religious, spiritual, social and emotional development of people with an intellectual disability.
SPRED is an acronym for SPecial REligious Development, but what it stands for is accepting the challenge and the privilege, of aiding persons with an intellectual disability to participate fully in the liturgical life of their Church.
SPRED consists of a group of volunteers who commit to forming small, faith communities to support the faith development of people with an intellectual disability by developing relationships of love, acceptance and welcome.
If you have a family member or friend who you think would like to join the SPRED Rivonia community, please contact Cherryl Brooke on 083 307 9453 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
