Ablaze / Junior High Ministry

Ablaze is our Saint Ambrose Junior High Ministry open to anyone in 6th, 7th or 8th grade in both PSR & Day school. Our goal is to provide students with engaging ways to follow their faith, with Jesus Christ, who is everything for us. We do this by offering service opportunities that mirror Jesus’ love and compassion for all, PSR classes during the school year to continue fostering the gospels, and social opportunities that bring us closer to others in faith. There are numerous ways that Junior High teens can get involved in the parish – come join us and find out how! We look forward to meeting you!

Ablaze Junior High PSR Youth Ministry

Another year has gone by so quickly for our Junior High students. We have watched them grow in their faith and continue to pray that they will continue to live by example on their journey. We are thankful for the team of Junior High Catechists that anchor our program week after week. They are appreciated!

During the Summer Months… we will continue to offer opportunities for Junior High teens to gather and use their many talents to help others, while fostering bonds between one another. On Summer Service Wednesdays, teens will have the opportunity to lend a helping hand by doing projects at nearby community locations.

“Embark in the Service of God” Summer Camp

June 25, 26 & 27 from 8:00am – 5:00pm

Teens will be making a difference in the lives of others at locations such as Saint Augustine Hunger Center and Haven of Rest Ministries. But don’t think that we don’t have a little bit of fun planned too… we will be visiting attractions such as the USS Cod and the Akron Zoo. You don’t want your teen to miss out on this life-changing service camp! EMBARK Registration 2019

Vacation Bible School (VBS) Volunteers!

This year’s VBS program, “ROAR!” is sure to be a big hit with our elementary students.

Please be sure to sign up to volunteer for either the morning and/or afternoon session by the deadline date of May 15. Volunteer forms are available at www.StAmbrose.us/VBS
