Sunday: Food Sale for Sound Equipment
Next Sunday, April 30, there will be a food sale following both Masses sponsored by our parish choirs to support the purchase of some new sound equipment for our church, including new microphones, cables, and other equipment. This will be a small step towards upgrading the entire sound system. There will be grilled chicken, grilled steak, rice, beans, salad, tortillas, and drinks available. All are welcome!

Sign up Now! Mother’s Day Novena May 6th - 14th
This year a novena of Masses will be offered at St. Ambrose for living and deceased mothers, grandmothers, aunts, and any other special women from Saturday, May 6 through Sunday, May 14. A Mass will be offered each day for this intention. If you would like to participate in the novena, please use the prayer cards and envelopes that will be in the church until the end of the novena. The prayer cards with the names of the intentions will be placed in a special binder on the altar for the duration of the novena. A suggested offering for the novena is $10.00. Envelopes and prayer cards may be returned to the parish office or placed in the weekend collection.
New Parish Office Location
Due to the large-scale presence of mold in the parish rectory, the parish staff has been relocated to different parts of the physical plant. Carla Vazquez, our parish secretary, has been relocated to a small meeting room in the back corner of the church by the parking lot. The office hours and office contact number remain the same. Look for a sign on the beige door for the new office. Mary Sims, our bookkeeper, and Alex Hernandez, our Director of Religious Education, have been relocated to the parish school. Mary’s new direct number is (301) 341-1790. Alex can still be reached by calling the main parish number. Fr. Cortinovis can be reached at the main parish office.
