Alzheimer’s/Dementia Ministry

The Alzheimer’s/Dementia Ministry at St. Francis reaches out both to those suffering from Alzheimer’s and other related dementia and to their caregivers. Its goal is to provide information to parishioners and support to caregivers of those whose memories have been robbed by dementia.
Twice-monthly support groups are available for caregivers.

The group meets
the first Wednesday of every month from 1 to 3 p.m. in the Padua Room in the Community Center
and the third Wednesday of every month from 7 to 9 p.m. in the Padua Room in the Community Center
