Dementia Support Group Meets 

The Benedictine Center is offering a Dementia Support Group on the second Tuesday of every month. The next meeting will be held April 12, from 7 to 9 p.m. at St. Paul’s Monastery in Maplewood.  

According to Sam Rahberg, director of the Center, this group gives caregivers a chance to share their journey with others, find renewal and feel full acceptance regardless of the topic.  

Led by Steve Arnold, a chaplain and spiritual director, each session will be a form of group spiritual direction with check-ins, introductions and discussions around the disease of dementia.  A freewill offering will be accepted.
