ST. AMBROSE TOY DRIVE

Healing Hearts

 

 

Our annual Toy Drive provides toys through Dolores Mission Parish for children whose family lives have been disrupted by crime - espeically due to murder. We are asking for donation of unwrapped toys for infants and children up to age 13. Donations can be submitted at the Sacred Heart Altar, next to our baptismal font or to the Parish Office.

Let these children know they are not forgotten, especially at the gracious time of year!

UPCOMING EVENTS

 

Annual Thanksgiving Potluck Dinner Join the entire St. Ambrose Parish Community in celebrating Thanksgiving - a time of gratitude for all of the blessings God has bestowed upon each of us this year - this coming November 24th, from 2-5:30 pm on the Parish Patio (weather permitting). It's potluck style and we want you to bring your favorite, traditional Thanksgiving dish to share! Just contact our Parish Office with your proposed seasonal dish and get ready to enjoy the family.

 

Adoration x  Divine Mercy | Join us this every 1st Friday of the month, for an evening of prayer, music and devotion. Eucharistic Adoration will begin at 7 pm, directly after the 6 pm Daily Mass, and will include the devotion of the Divine Mercy Chaplet. For more information, contact our Parish Office - (323) 656 - 4433.

 

DYNAMIC DISCIPLES | Starting in November, join with us in the Parish Center, every 1st Saturday of the month from 9:30a -11a, to discover, explore and live more fully the love Jesus offers. Discipleship is a dynamic relationship with Jesus Christ, both in spirit and in His mystical body, the Church. As we grow in our relationship with Jesus, we become more aware of His love for us and we grow in love for others. Through this overflowing love, we lead others to find their own relationship with God - all are welcome!

 

#Livingtheword - Scripture Sharing |Every Wednesday, after Daily Mass and the Rosary, join our Scripture/Bible Study. Each meeting consists of a light meal, a short presentation on the coming Sunday's readings, followed by small group discussion on how this Word touches and affects us personally. There is a cost of $10 for our study materials and, of course, any further donations are welcome!

 

GLO-WeHo (LGBT Ministry) | 
Our monthly socials are on the last Sunday, of every month, after the 6 pm Mass in the Parish Center. Food and drink will be provided - donations accepted. Let us celebrate, fellowship and support our LGBT brothers and sisters in Christ! NOTE:  Our November social will be postponed, in light of our annual parish Thanksgiving Potluck, November 24th. We will resume in December. If you'd like to be a part of our planning committee for the ministry, please contact Dn. Michael at the Parish Office: (323) 656-4433
