Community Dementia Support Ministry
In the fall of 2017 St. Mary’s began a partnership with a local non-profit group called Memory Lane, to create programming specifically tailored towards individuals with dementia and their caregivers. A Friday Lunch and Hymn Sing began at that time, where anyone could join in for a free hot meal at noon and then attend a time of fellowship and familiar music afterwards. Current research has shown that religious rituals of well-rehearsed hymns and prayer are not affected by the cognitive decline of dementia and other similar ailments. All are welcome to join us for our Friday afternoon program from Noon till 2pm. For more information or if you have any questions, please call Mona at (905) 876-8666.
