Our Catholic faith is an essential part of life at Saint Ambrose Catholic School. The call to worship, witness, and serve is manifested throughout the school day. The school community gathers for prayer and liturgical celebrations. The many service projects, including food and clothing drives, and fundraisers to aid the victims of natural disasters, instill in the students a sense of mission and concern for others. The staff, parents, and students work together to promote an atmosphere of respect and responsibility.
