2016-2017 Faith Theme:
Mercy in Motion
Pope Francis inaugurated a Jubilee Year of Mercy last December. This year at Saint Ambrose School, we seek to put Mercy in Motion by learning about and acting out the Corporal and Spiritual Works of Mercy.
Each month we will feature a Corporal or Spiritual Work of Mercy. Each week classes will be given a PowerPoint slide with a work of art that depicts either a work of mercy or the life of a person who exemplified a work of mercy. Classes can reflect, dicuss or write about the content of the slide.
September: Feed the Hungry
This month the students of the junior high have challenged the St. Ambrose community to "Dine in so others can dine." To participate, eat at home instead of going out to eat and donate the money you saved. We will purchase grocery store scrip cards to be used by the St. Vincent de Paul Society when they visit hungry families in our community.
