Thanks so much for your interest and involvement in St. Ambrose LIFE TEEN and THE EDGE. Our goal is to provide many opportunites for your youth to grow in their Catholic faith and to serve in the community.
Our youth activities are centered around the Eucharist and at St. Ambrose we have a special opportunity for teens to serve as lectors and ushers at the youth-centered LIFE TEEN masses on Sundays at 5:30pm. Both LIFE TEEN (High School) and THE EDGE (Middle School/Junior High) have age specific programs filled with food, fun, games and opportunities to learn and grow in understanding of our Catholic Faith. You are always welcome to stop by and see what our events are all about.
During the year, we also offer special events and service opportunities. Check out the calendar of events associated with our programs on their pages. Some of these include:
And we also have opportunities to take trips to explore our faith in other locations. Some of these may require special costs and commitment to fundraising and service activites. They may include:
All of our events and trips are optional, and where necessary scholarships and financial help are typically available to assist those who wish to attend but do not have the means.
Finally, we take the safety and spiritual health of your teens seriously. All Youth Ministry volunteers and Core Team members are VIRTUS trained; have submitted to FBI background checks and many have been certified as Catechists or Youth Ministers by the Diocese of Albany. As part of your youth's participation in our programs, you will also be given opportunities to participate in our
Safe Environment program. Below you will find more information about Safe Environment in our Diocese.
If you have any questions or concerns at any time, you can contact our Parish youth minister, Mark Trudeau:
