CELEBRATE AND LIVE THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST

FAITH FILLED COMMUNITY FOR ALL WHO

COVID-19 PROCEDURES UPDATE - JUNE 5-6, 2021
WELCOME TO ST. AMBROSE

Saint Ambrose Parish was established on January 4, 1948. The name of the parish was chosen by Bishop Hunt to honor St. Ambrose, the early Church’s learned and scholarly Bishop of Milan, and because his Episcopal coat of arms contained a beehive, both symbolic of Ambrose’s eloquence, and also the symbol of the State of Utah. The Patronal feast of the parish is December 7th, commemorating the day St. Ambrose was consecrated bishop in 374.

Our parochial school, J.E. Cosgriff Memorial Catholic School, accepts students toddler through eighth grade. The mission of J.E. Cosgriff Memorial Catholic School is to guide our students to become respectful, responsible, and productive citizens through quality academic instruction that is grounded in Catholic teachings and tradition.

We also have Religious Education classes for all children from 3 years old through eighth grade, the year in which we have Confirmation. Parishioners of all ages enjoy opportunities for Faith Formation—from celebrating the sacraments, to meeting God in new ways through Youth Ministry, to growing in faith with other adults in our parish through small groups and speaker events.

We have many active ministries—so there’s always somewhere to get involved. Interested in learning more or becoming a memberContact us.

  • Use apps like iBreviary or Laudate to pray the Liturgy of the Hours, and also pray through the Order of Mass on your own.

New COVID Norms

 

Bishop Solis issued new norms for dealing with COVID-19 on May 26, 2021.

 

● The dispensation from attending Sunday Mass is lifted for those in good

health:

 

● "The Dispensation from Sunday Mass and Holydays of Obligation is lifted effective on the weekend on June 5-6, 2021the Feast of the Body and Blood of Christ. The normal practice of our faith to "keep Holy the Lord's Day" by coming to Mass each Sunday will once again be in effect, which includes the obligation to participate, in-person, in the celebration of Holy Mass each weekend for all who are able to do so.

 

● The dispensation still applies to those who are sick, elderly, homebound, experiencing great difficulties or other serious risks/concerns in coming to the Church. The dispensation does not relieve the faithful from their sacred duty to keep holy the Sabbath, so all are encouraged to spend time in prayer, thanksgiving, and rest on the Lord's Day.

 

● Those who are sick, vulnerable or who care for others with underlying chronic health conditions, as well as those not feeling well, are encouraged to refrain from going to Church and remain at home. They are encouraged to watch and participate in livestreamed or televised Mass.

 

● You may call your Pastor and request to receive Holy Communion at home."

 

● St. Ambrose will permanently continue to offer our Sunday video Masses for shut-ins and those who are ill.

 

● Due to the size and health airflow in our chapel, mask wearing is optional.

 

● The reception of Holy Communion on the tongue, the universal norm of the Latin Rite, is again allowed.

 

● Please, if you are ill or think you might be ill whether with COVID or something else, PLEASE STAY HOME. It is not a sin to miss Mass when ill.

 

Praise God for these new steps back to normal!
