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!
Hamilton Diocesan second Annual Bible Sunday will take place on Sunday, February 3, 2019.
The focus of this year’s observance will be Listening to God’s Word at Mass.
To highlight this theme Father Michael Patella, O.S.B, a monk of St. John’s Abbey, Collegeville, Minnesota, has been invited to be our guest speaker at two special celebrations to be held on February 3rd:
- Michael Church, 240 Hemlock Street, Waterloo at 2:00 p.m. OR
- Cathedral Basilica of Christ the King, 700 King Street West, Hamilton at 7:00 p.m.
Father Patella will be speaking on the Gospel of Luke which we will be hearing during the coming Liturgical Year C. In particular, Father Patella will be inviting participants to consider what to listen for as the Gospel of Luke is proclaimed at Sunday Mass during the coming year. The Gospel and Acts Volume of the Saint John’s Bible will be available for viewing at each presentation. Mark your calendars now! All are welcome.
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.
