Ministry of Care was started by Vi McCarty and has been part of our St. Ambrose family for decades. If you have a prayer request or would like to become a St. Ambrose prayer warrior, please email your information to firstname.lastname@example.org. Prayer requests will be sent to members at the beginning of each month via email in the form of an attached letter. For prayers needed in between the monthly letter you can simply send your request to the same email, and all members who are on the email chain will receive it. If you do not have access to email, you can contact the rectory to request a copy to be mailed to you. For other questions please feel free to contact co-chairs Betsy Dunn 330-719-2657 or Judy Macek 330-398- 5000.
Are You Registered?
To avoid problems or misunderstandings, especially when planning baptisms, marriages, etc., be sure that you are registered and active. To register, call the rectory at 330-527- 4105. One way to show you are active means to use your weekly contribution envelopes. That way, the computer will not deactivate you.
