Introducing the new Coordinator of Youth Ministry!

Hello, parents and caregivers,

My name is Sarah Kwiecinski, and I am the new Coordinator of Youth Ministry at St. Ambrose Church.

I am delighted to be entering into parish ministry, and I look forward to forming a strong connection with the St. Anne school community and working alongside the staff to form the students in faith!

I will also be working closely with Fr. Gary Schlack, parish staff, and volunteers to build-up youth ministry programming at the church. Please keep your eye on Newswire for announcements of upcoming parish events and activities including a youth group for students in Grades 6 to 8, as well as Vacation Bible School this summer.

Please be assured of my prayers for all families and staff of St. Anne school!

I wish everyone a blessed Lenten season as we prepare ourselves to celebrate God’s great gift of love through His son’s death and joyful resurrection!

God Bless,

Sarah Kwiecinski
