WELCOME TO ST. AMBROSE PARISH
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!
This weekend we usher in the Second Sunday of Advent, in which two candles will be lit on the Advent wreath. Advent is a time of prayer and preparation for the coming of the Christ Child. Please, join us at Mass as we await the commemoration of Jesus’ birth.
Donations to the Society of St. Vincent de Paul would be gratefully appreciated.
This will enable the Society to assist those in need with a food hamper and store vouchers for Christmas. Leave your donation in the box located under the tree. Special envelopes are provided.
The Pope Video is a global initiative of the Pope’s World Prayer Network ( Apostleship of Prayer) to spread the Holy Father’s monthly prayer intentions. We feature some of there here.
