A Family Rosary will take place on Friday, Dec. 14th at 6:30pm at St. Ambrose Church. All families and children of ALL ages are welcome, no child is too young nor too old to attend. After the Rosary we will have fellowship in the church basement. Please bring a snack to share. Refreshments will be provided. Please use side door off the parking lot. “To pray the Rosary for children, and even more, with children, training them from their earliest years to experience this daily “pause for prayer” with the family, is admittedly not the solution to every problem, but it is a spiritual aid which should not be underestimated” Saint Pope John Paul II
Children’s Mass will be held on Sunday, Dec. 16th at 11:00 am. Families with young children are invited to attend this Mass. Children will be invited to sit in the Sanctuary for the homily. Everyone is welcome! ….. What Is “Bambinelli Sunday?” Each year on the Third Sunday of Advent, children gather with their families in St. Peter’s Square for “Bambinelli Sunday.” The children bring with them figurines of the Christ Child — the “Bambinelli” — from their family’s Nativity scene. Here at St. Ambrose Parish, we invite children to bring their baby Jesus to our Children’s Mass on December 16th and Father Irek will bless their “bambinelli” baby Jesus figurine.
