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 ~ At St. Ambrose Church
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.
