Donations to St. Ambrose Parish:
Dear Parishioners, this is certainly a difficult time for all of us, both personally and financially. However, parish operating expenses continue during this time. The only income received for Parishes is through the offertory at Masses, and with Masses suspended indefinitely donations would be greatly appreciated.
If you are able to still donate to the parish, these are the options available:
- CHEQUES can be left in the office/rectory mailbox.
- through CanadaHelps donation portal here… https://www.canadahelps.org/en/dn/29580
- the Diocese of Hamilton has set up an Offertory portal to allow for charitable donations to be given to parishes. To access the offertory portal for the Diocese of Hamilton please follow this link, and specify your donation to St. Ambrose Parish… https://hamiltondiocese.com/covid19parishfund/
Prayer before Our Blessed Lady
Prayer to Our Lady
of Perpetual Help
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!
