The Religious Education program at Saint Ambrose seeks to foster in our youth a deeper awareness of Christ in their lives and to encourage growth in the wider faith community.
There are three sources of religious formation: family life, parish life, and formal instruction. We recognize that the parents are the first and foremost educators of their children. Their faith and their loving and trusting attitude toward God and human beings strongly influence their child’s faith.
Our program is designed to build upon and reinforce all that is positive in the family and home environment. In cooperation with parents, St. Ambrose Catechists proclaim Christ’s message and, through the guidance of the Holy Spirit, participate in efforts to develop community, lead youth to worship and motivate them to serve others.
All children who are three years old by September 1 are welcome to attend Religious Education classes, including children who attend Catholic school. We have classes for Preschool through 8th grade (Confirmation).
Classes are held from 9:45 am -10:45 am. on Sundays September through May. Families may attend Mass either before or after class.
RCIA For Children is for older children who have missed sacramental preparation. Students participating in RCIA for Children may participate in a push-in/pull-out model of instruction while participating with their grade-level peers or in a separate class depending on the situation. Please contact the Religious Education Office at the phone number or e-mail below for guidance on which option would be best for your student.
RCIA is for adults who are interested in starting or continuing their faith formation journey.
