Faith formation at St. Ambrose

  • Our Mission

    We are committed to serving the entire Family of Parishes: St. Ambrose, St. Clare of Montefalco, St. Matthew and St. Paul on the Lake.  It is our mission to provide ongoing faith formation through experiences of learning about God, growing deeper in relationship with God through prayer and service to God’s people.

    Our primary goal is to help our students develop a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.  This is done in the context of a program which:

    • provides an experience of and encourages a reverence for Sacred Scripture;

    • emphasizes the importance of living the Ord through prayer and action in our daily lives;

    • is faithful to Church doctrine; and

    • encourages meaningful participation in the communal, sacramental, and liturgical life of the Church.

  • Faith Formation Classes
