A Workshop for the Discovery of “Your” Spiritual Gifts

Do you sometimes feel that there might be more to your spiritual life? Have you ever wondered what difference it really makes that you are Catholic? If these questions linger in your head, then you should discover your Spiritual Gifts more deeply.
In the New Testament, we read several times about the use of spiritual gifts. But what are they, and how can they help us live a life closer to GOD – and more fulfilled?

This is what we are going to find out in the course “CALLED AND GIFTED”:
We will meet 5 times online to watch short videos together, and then to discuss in small break-out groups what we have learned. You will also take the Spiritual Gift Inventory – and get the results instantly.
Your financial investment? The cost for the course is $150.00. We ask that each participant to pay $75.00 and the parish will pay the other $75.00.
Financial assistance is available for anyone who really wants to take the course but cannot afford it.
Starting date will be September 22nd and we meet on Thursdays from 7:00 – 9:00 pm on line.
Registrants and interested people are asked to contact the parish office by phone 519-621-2013 or email

Calling All Men!
• Do you need a reboot?

Then “Exodus 90” may be for you. More than 60,000 men from around the world have journeyed through Exodus with their fellow brothers. Single men, married men, priests, bishops, Christian and non-Christians alike.
Exodus 90 is a 3-month spiritual exercise based on prayer, asceticism and fraternity.

Invitation to join the St. Ambrose Parish Ladies Card Group

There is a ladies euchre group through St. Ambrose, inviting new members. We play 8 times between September and March and each session there are 8 games of euchre played. Each lady hosts 2 sets of games at her home in an afternoon or evening & together with her partner they invite another pair from the schedule. In late April we have an “end of the season” potluck dinner & card night in the church hall. The cost is $20.00 for the season with all money going to charities of the groups’ choice. It is a lot of fun and you connect with different people. We also have a small group participating in bridge who are also looking for new members. Please consider this social outing. Call Connie Psenak @ 519-740-1394 for more information about either group.

Knights of Columbus 
contact person – Selwyn Langlois  519-621-2580
The Knights of Columbus Galt council 2184 welcomes new members. This is open to all practicing Catholic men ages 18 and over.
The Knights of Columbus began as a group of men who sought strength in solidarity, and security through unity of purpose and devotion to a holy cause: they vowed to be defenders of their faith, their families and their country. The Order has been called “the strong right arm of the Church,” and has been praised by popes, and world leaders, for support of the Church, programs of evangelization and Catholic education, civic involvement and aid to those in need.
