Month of All Souls

In the Catholic Tradition, the month of November is a time to pray for our deceased loved ones.  Cards will be available in the Gathering Space for all Ambrosians to record the names of their deceased loved ones, beginning on All Souls Day, November 2.  These cards will be placed at the front of the altar where they will remain throughout the entire month.  We will continue to pray for the deceased all throughout November, trusting them to God's loving mercy.  In the words of St. Ambrose of Milan, our patron, "We have loved them in this life.  Let us not abandon them until we have conducted them by our prayers into the house of the Lord."

Thanksgiving Break 2014

Due to Thanksgiving Break, there will be no Sunday or daily masses offered from Sunday, November 23 through Saturday, November 29.  Regular mass schedule will resume with 6:30pm mass on Sunday, November 30.  From all of us in Campus Ministry, have a safe and blessed thanksgiving!

Advent at Ambrose

Sunday, November 30 is the first Sunday of Advent.  Advent is not only a season of preparation for Christmas - it acknowledges our need to be constantly vigilant for the Lord's return, "waiting in joyful hope."  Here are ways you can make it a joyful season of hope:

  • Pick up a copy of the Daily Meditation Booklets by Sr. Janet Schaeffler, OP.  They are available in the Chapel Gathering Space, and in the window space by the Rogalski Center Post Office.
  • Take advantage of opportunities for Daily Mass in Christ the King Chapel.  Monday/Friday at 12 noon, Tuesday/Thursday at 4:30pm, Wednesday at 9:15pm.
  • Spend some time in prayer to begin Advent with Late Night Adoration on Monday, December 1 at 9:00pm.  A wonderful time to reflect and begin the season.  Come join us for prayer before the Blessed Sacrament.
  • Take part in the Advent Communal Celebration of the Sacrament of Reconciliation, Wednesday, December 3 at 8:30pm in Christ the King Chapel.  A short service of prayer is followed by the opportunity for individual confession to one of the priests who are present.
  • A special Lessons and Carols service will take place on Saturday, December 6 at 7:00pm in the Chapel.  Come join in a time of reflection on scriptures for the season, with music featuring the University Chorale and Chamber Singers.
  • Celebrate the Feast of St. Ambrose Mass with us on Sunday, December 7 at 10:30am in the Chapel.  Presider and homilist will be Most Rev. Martin Amos, Bishop of Davenport, and music led by a combined choir of SAU Chamber Singers and Music Ministry.  The McMullen Awards will also be presented to Joe, '72 and Joyce O'Rourke, and John '58 and Helen '57 Morrissey.  Come celebrate our patron saint!
  • Plan to take part in the Student Candlelight Mass preceding Midnight Breakfast on Tuesday, December 9 at 9:00pm.  In the chapel, filled with light from candles held by students, we celebrate the mystery, the joy, and the hope Christ's birth has brought to our world.
