Volunteer Opportunities

Thank you for giving of your time and talent!  Know that you are part of a large group of volunteers that give of their gifts in order to pass on our Catholic faith to the youth of our parish, by serving as a disciple of Christ. It is only through the generosity of our parish family that we are able to provide all the ministries and services that we do. Your generosity and commitment are truly appreciated!

How can you help?

Fish Fry Cooks

Our Lent Fish Fry is right around the corner.  We are in need of some people who can assist in the cooking (all the training is provided).  If you can help fry fish and fries, we need you.  Contact Father Bob for details (FrBob@StAmbrose.us).


Funeral Servers and Hospitality

We want to give all of our members and their families a funeral that brings comfort and great peace.  To make this possible, we need a few more people to help as Funeral Servers and Greeters.  All the training is provided. Please contact Helen if you are interested. (HLanzarotta@StAmbrose.us).


Photos and Videos

We have so many wonderful programs and events in our parish.  We could use a few additional members to take pictures and create short videos to help us promote and remember the great moments and activities of our community. Please contact Natalie if you are interested. (NEnglish@StAmbrose.us)


Easter Egg Stuffing

In the weeks before Easter, Saint Ambrose goes through roughly around 5,000 eggs which are used for our Bunny Brunch, Egg Hunt and as Easter treat for the children after Easter morning Masses. We could use about 10 volunteers to help stuff eggs, count and organize them.  We will also accept any donated items to be used for stuffing the eggs.  Contact Helen Lanzarotta hlanzarotta@stambrose.us

Group or Ministry Help

Building & Grounds

Our Building & Grounds Team does great work for our parish! They’re a group of guys (and gals) who assist St. Ambrose in a variety of handiwork type projects, from painting, to fixing desks in the school, to making basic repairs, to helping implement our Preventative Maintenance Program across our campus. If you are handy and have a few hours a month to spare, reach out to Ken Kukarola to get started: kukarolapa@aol.com

Community Meals

Once a month we host a community meal at Saint Ambrose. We need about 5 high school volunteers to help out. Please contact Lisa Homady at LHomady@StAmbrose.us to sign up to help!

Heavenly Angels

The Heavenly Dusters help clean the church each week, to keep our church warm, clean and inviting for all our members! Dusting, Vacuuming and wiping down the pews are all essential jobs for the Heavenly Angels. This is a great way to get involved and if you have a young one at home, please feel to bring them along! Contact Lisa Beckett: labecket@aol.com
