ARISE Season 3!

Thanks to newly acquired technology, parishioners will be able to participate in Arise Season Three from the comfort of their homes. 

No Internet – no problem!  You can participate by phone.

Starting on October 19th and continuing for six consecutive Mondays from 7 pm to 8:30 pm we will join in small groups to journey in the footsteps of Christ to pray, to share and to learn together and, most importantly, stay connected with one another during these unprecedented times.  For many of us this will be stepping out of our comfort zones, but we are blessed to have this opportunity to continue to grow spiritually with Arise Together in Christ!  Help is available if needed to learn how to access the meetings.

We will even have a virtual social hour on Monday, November 30th at 7 pm.  Grab your favorite beverage and enjoy some social time with your fellow participants.

Registration forms including details on dates, how to join and where to pick up your book are available on the parish web site, the Our Parish Facebook page, the St. Ambrose Religious Education Facebook page or by calling the Rectory.

We look forward to coming together for Season Three Arise Together in Christ!

Bible Study

We have moved Bible Study to the virtual world!  Join us on Thursdays at 7:00PM on Zoom to study, meditate, and learn from the Bible.  This is also a wonderful opportunity to reconnect with your fellow parishioners.  To receive a Zoom invite directly from Jim Heller, please forward your name and email information to [email protected] 

The Bible Study is to develop a personal relationship with Jesus through the study and living out the truth in the scriptures.  It is to bring the Word alive in each participant through the action, power, and love of the Holy Spirit.  Each week several chapters of the book being studied are read and discussed.  One book at a time is read until completed.  Everyone gets a chance for comments and has a say in the choice of the next book that is studied.

Small Group Communities


What is meant by Faith-Sharing?

Small Group Communities come together to read specific Scripture passages and then reflect and share with their small group family how the passage speaks to them and how they see God calling them to action in their daily lives.

Small Group Faith-Sharing Communities invite us, through Scripture, to encounter and experience Christ in a more meaningful and personal way.

Bonds are formed within the small group community by sharing how each member believes Christ is speaking to them personally through Scripture and by praying together and opening their hearts to receive the Holy Spirit.

Faith-sharing is rooted in the belief that God is always present and active in our lives and invites us to acknowledge this presence and action with one another in a safe and confidential setting.

Prayer Group

Prayer Meeting in the Virtual World!  Join us on Zoom each Tuesday as we pray with Father Cliff Bishop from 7:00PM - 8:30PM.  For more information, please call the parish office.

The prayer meeting exists to equip missionary disciples to declare and demonstrate the power and love of God in their sphere of influence through the gifts of the Holy Spirit.  It, also, is to bring the participants into a deeper, more joyful relationship with the Lord, His loving and healing presence, and the true identity of who they really are in Him.  There is a time for sharing what the Lord is or has recently been doing in a person's life and a time to pray for intentions and each other.

The Sodality of the Blessed Virgin Mary

The Sodality of the Blessed Virgin Mary of Saint Ambrose Church is an organized group of women who gather to practice simple devotions to honor our Blessed Mother. We recite the prayers of the Holy Rosary and the Novena Prayer to Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal.

The purpose of Sodality is to foster in the hearts of the members a more than ordinary devotion to our Blessed Lady and implore her special protection in life and death.

We are, primarily and foremost, a prayer group and do not practice extraordinary fundraising measures.  Our treasury is comprised mostly of the annual $5 membership fee and a monthly donation of $5 from all of the members who attend the meeting.
