Couple to Couple Ministry
Couple to Couple Ministers share their journey with some of the couples preparing for Marriage and their Weddings at Saint Ambrose. We are so blessed by their ‘yes’ and choosing to share their gift of married love. As we grow in the number of weddings, we could use a few more couples. No couple is perfect… more importantly, each couple works to perfect love over the course of their life and marriage. If you are interested and/or open to learning more, please contact Kim Nemet (Knemet@StAmbrose.us).
Prayer Blanket Makers
Our parish is very blessed to have wonderful members who make beautiful prayer blankets for each child who is baptized. We are always looking for a few more volunteers to help with this ministry. You can do it on your time and with your own pattern. To learn more, please contact Jane Baldwin (jbaldwin@StAmbrose.us).
Greeters and Ushers
Jesus teaches us to be hospitable to one another and to our guests. Our team of greeters and ushers serve on the “front lines” to establish and maintain the spirit of hospitality and warmth for all who gather for worship at Saint Ambrose Parish. They are volunteers who minister to the entire church family and visitors alike in a variety of practical ways. If you have the interest and ability to step forth and take on the great responsibility of making everyone feel comfortable and at home during our Masses and services, we welcome you to sign-up with Diane Heilman at DHeilman@StAmbrose.us.
Offertory Gift Bearer
Serving as an Offertory gift bearer is an honor that requires no special skill or training. It is a beautiful and significant part of the Mass performed by lay people who have the willingness to serve in this important role. Gift bearers carry the wine, the hosts, and the offerings to the presiding priest at Mass for Consecration. Due to previous COVID-19 restrictions, this practice was paused for the safety of our parishioners. With restrictions being lifted we are looking forward to inviting individuals and families back to fulfilling this important job. Please reach out to Diane Heilman at DHeilman@StAmbrose.us if you are interested.
Heavenly Angels Cleaning Ministry
We have a wonderful team of our members who help take care of our Church every Thursday, at 9:00 am. As we get back to a fuller crowd in Church, we need some extra hands on Thursday mornings. Come once a month….come every week…..what’s most important is we need your help. Think about cleaning God’s House….and spending an hour with the Lord. Cleanliness is next to godliness. We are looking for a few new volunteers. Cleaning consists of vacuuming, dusting, window washing, and cleaning the pews when needed. All supplies are provided. If you are interested, please contact Amanda McCrary at AJMM18@aol.com.

Building & Grounds
Our Building and Grounds volunteers have been amazing over the past few weeks getting our campus back up to speed and in good repair. They could use a few extra helpers to join them – once or twice a month – for a couple of hours. Help them do great good and keep our parish facilities in top shape. To sign up, or learn more, contact Ken at firstname.lastname@example.org
Volunteers / Catechists for PSR and Youth Ministry
Looking for a great way to volunteer? Want to share the faith with our children and teens? Consider serving as a volunteer for our Parish School of Religion (PSR) or Youth Ministry Programs. Volunteers are always needed – to serve as catechists, help in the kitchen, assist with events, etc. If you’re interested, please contact Janet Majka (PSR) at JMajka@StAmbrose.us or Caitlin O’Neill (Youth Ministry) at COneill@StAmbrose.us.
