Feast of Ambrose Mass and McMullen Award Presentation

Martin Amos, Bishop of Davenport and Chair of the SAU Board of Trustees, will be the presider and homilist for this special liturgy.  Music for the mass will be led by a combined choir of SAU Chamber Singers and Music Ministry.  The mass also features the presentation of the McMullen Awards to this year's recipients: Bernie Hardiek and Dr. Thomas and Mary Ann Stoffel.  A reception will follow in the Gathering Space.  All are welcome!

Advent at Ambrose

Advent begins on Sunday, November 27.  In this season of preparation and remaining vigilant for the Lord's coming in our lives, we invite you to consider these ways you can celebrate Advent right here at SAU:

  • Pick up a copy of Wondrous Days of Comfort and Joy, a book of Advent reflections by Janet Schaeffler, OP.
  • Participate in Daily Mass Mondays and Fridays at 12 noon, Tuesdays and Thursdays at 4:30pm, and Wednesdays at 9:15pm.  Regular daily masses will be held until Monday, December 12, ending with the noon mass that day.
  • Enjoy a special Lessons and Carols service, featuring the University Chorale and Chamber Singers, on Friday, December 2 at 7:00pm in the Chapel.
  • Attend the Advent Communal Reconciliation Service on Monday, December 5 at 7:00pm in the Chapel.  A short prayer service is followed by the opportunity for individual confession with one of the priests present.
  • Commemorate the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary, a holy day of obligation, with either the vigil mass on Wednesday, December 7 at 9:15pm, or mass on Thursday, December 8 at 4:30pm.  Plus, come for a special time of Eucharistic Adoration that Thursday evening at 9:00pm in the Chapel.
  • Finally, SAU students are invited to the Student Candlelight Mass on Tuesday, December 13 at 9:00pm.  Enjoy one last mass together before break to celebrate the season.  Just before Midnight Breakfast.

We hope yours will be a spirit-filled and prayerful Advent season.  Happy Advent!
