This year's Feast of Saint Ambrose Mass will be concelebrated by Msgr. Cesare Pasini, the prefect of the Vatican Library, and the Most Rev. Martin Amos, DD, bishop of the Diocese of Davenport.
As part of the mass ceremony, the McMullen Awards, named in honor of St. Ambrose's founder, Bishop John McMullen, will be presented to individuals who embody the university's mission of enriching the lives of others. The public is invited to attend the mass and award ceremony. A reception will follow.
