How blessed we are at St. Ambrose Parish! We have a beautiful church in which to peacefully and safely worship our Lord, but even more, we have wonderful people who give of themselves through their time and talents to make our parish a faith-filled community. A parish does not just simply begin overnight. It is built, piece by piece, person by person, by those who dedicated themselves from the very foundation of our parish. We owe so much to those people who, over 60 years ago, were instrumental in establishing our parish community. We cannot look to the future without acknowledging the efforts of the past. Presently, just as in the past, our parish is a constant reminder of God’s love for us, and for our families.

Pope Francis said,

“How precious is the family as the privileged place for transmitting the faith!”

We gather together to praise and worship, and most importantly, receive the Sacraments. Those who enter our church do so with a desire to know the Lord more intimately, and we hope they will also find a welcoming parish family. You are most welcome to join our family!

Apostolic Exhortation from Pope Francis: Gaudete et exsultate

The Vatican released the latest Apostolic Exhortation from Pope Francis: Gaudete et exsultate: On the call to holiness in today’s world. Its goal is “to re-propose the call to holiness in a practical way for our own time.” The Exhortation is addressed personally to each and every one of us, whatever our state in life. The Holy Father “exhorts” us to engage in a journey that takes place in the concrete here and now of our daily lives, in small gestures and little things, in which we are led more and more by God’s grace. This journey makes us more alive and more human.
