Even though I walk in the dark valley, I fear no evil; for you are at my side. (Psalm 23)

We all hold a story of faith and love within our hearts. Faith is about remembering our story of salvation. Our common prayer in the Mass is a memorial of what God has done among God’s people. When our memories fade, we beginning losing our identity.  We lose the words to tell others who we are in the world. We lose our link to our past. We lose the love that binds us to family and friends, We lose the God who has brought us this far. Memory is sacred.

Memory loss is one of the most devastating diseases that we encounter for our loved ones or for our own lives. Learn more about how we are called to walk with loved ones whom do not remember us, to care for those whom may not remember our names, to walk with people whom may not understand where God may be leading.
