“The 12 Days of Christmas” is a special ministry here at Saint Ambrose. Quite simply, we adopt almost 80 families that are in need of a little extra of God’s love, care and kindness this season. For the 12 days prior to Christmas, we make and drop off little gifts of thoughtfulness and remembrance. Every year this means so much to those who receive the gifts and those who have made the commitment to put their special person “first” during this Christmas season.
