On Line Giving

Support the Food Bank

On the first Sunday of the month, St. Ambrose parishioners show their generosity by “brown bagging” donations for the local food pantry. Please consider bringing a bag of non-perishable food or cleaning products. Just leave your bag in the vestibule as you arrive for Mass. Thank you!

Ministry of Care: Prayer Request

If you have a special prayer request, please call Don Neu ( evenings) at 330-367-9262, email him at djncep@yahoo.com, or put your prayer requests in the collection basket. We would also like to invite you to become a member of the Ministry of Care. There are no meetings to attend – all that is required is 5 to 10 minutes daily in prayer to ask for God's blessings on those people who are in need of prayer. If you are interested in joining, please call Don.

Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults

The R.C.I.A. is a formation process for adults (18 years of age and older) who wish to become Catholic. Classes are held in the rectory or church hall for learning, faith sharing and fellowship. The culmination of the R.C.I.A. is at the Easter Vigil at which time we will celebrate the sacraments of initiation: Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist. If you or someone you know may be interested in becoming Catholic and being involved in the R.C.I.A. classes, please call the rectory at 330-527-4105.

Mass for New Year’s Day

Mass for New Years Day, the Solemnity of the Mary, Mother of God, is at 9:00 a.m. Monday, Jan. 1. (Because the Solemnity falls on a Monday this year, it is not a holy day of obligation for Catholics in the United States.)

Masses for Life
