…”Grant, O Lord, that
we may always revere
and love your holy name,
for you never deprive of
your guidance those you
set firm on the
foundation of your love.
Through our Lord Jesus
Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with
you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God,
for ever and ever.” The Collect for the 12 th
Sunday in Ordinary Time articulates a powerful
prayer and promise of the Lord, “for you never
deprive of your guidance those you set firm on
the foundation of our love.” Never deprived!!
That’s the promise of the Lord. We need to
pray each day for the wisdom to set our lives
on the foundation of the Lord. If we do so,
we will never be deprived of the grace and help
we need. In these summer days, make some
time to reflect on the promise of the Lord.
…I am writing this letter from our mission
community in the Dominican Republic. The
theme for the week is, “God’s grace is
sufficient.” We have been asking the group of
48 missionaries to be reflecting on how God’s
grace provides for all our needs. In the first
three days, they have been stretched and
challenged to do things and reflect on things
they have never encountered. In each moment,
we have been asking them to think of a
moment, need, instant, that God has not, or
could not, provide. So far, we have not found
an instance (or need) where the outpouring
of God’s grace has not been provided.
...Today we spent a full day unloading the
container which was shipped with supplies for
those most in need. As we unloaded the
materials, I was overwhelmingly aware of
your goodness. The container was packed…
full…and overflowing….all was/is a gift from
our members. In these days, I am holding
you in prayer and thought. I am acutely
aware of the good we do at home….in our
mission….throughout our region. You are
wonderful instruments of God’s grace and
goodness. Thank you so much.
…We are making great progress to assist
and support those who are most in need. By
the time you read this, we should be very close
to completing five houses. The families, who
currently live in tin shacks by the river, will be
moving into their homes on Sunday (this
weekend). We will also set the foundation for
five new homes. They will have water (nonportable)
which we installed. The foundation
for the new church (only Catholic Church in
the area) will be set. We will complete the
community center. This is all in addition to the
Vacation Bible School and basic repairs and
FROM THE PASTOR
social work. All very good. Please hold us in
prayer as we travel home on Monday.
…I must confess that the beauty of the
internet and cell phones is that the work of
Saint Ambrose continues. In between the
mission work, I did some marriage counseling
on the phone today not to mention planning a
funeral. In a wonderful way, because our
parish is most alive, even in the midst of
summer, there is much going on. Praise God.
As we set our parish, and each of our lives,
we will never be deprived of what we need
from our good God.
…There’s also much progress around our
parish campus. Our building and grounds
volunteer crew is hard at work in the school
building making it safer for all our students.
Thanks to the wonderful water God has
provided, our new field looks amazing. All
…Each day our campus is alive because of the
120+ school-age children enrolled in our
summer camp program. It’s an excellent
opportunity for our young people to spend their
summer days with their friends, learning about
the Lord, enriching their studies, and having
great fun. Thank you, Mrs. Hill and Mrs.
Herman, for making this possible for our
…Many thanks to all who have already
signed up and offered fresh fruit and
vegetables for our Food Bank. All these
fresh items will be shared with those most in
need in our region. You may have also noticed
that ALL the fruit trees in our orchard are alive
and our parish community garden is planted
and growing. All very good (and healthy).
…Please keep our FIAT teens in your
prayers this week as they head to
Stuebenville for their youth conference/retreat.
It’s always a source of inspiration for our teens.
…This coming week, as we bring to a close
the month of June and the official end of the
school year, we say farewell to our outgoing
school principal, Mrs. Chris Bopp. She has
been a great blessing to Saint Ambrose
School and Parish for the past six years. Her
warm spirit and strong faith greatly enriched
our school community. Under her guidance,
our school has grown and developed. Thank
you, Chris, for all you have done for Saint
Ambrose. We wish you well and hold you in
prayer as you continue your service to the
Church at Saint Angela Parish.
…Thanks and farewell also to Alexa
Schuele. Alexa, as you have read, is headed to
Virginia to be with her boyfriend. She has
done a great job with our teen program. Alexa
is a strong woman of faith with a very generous
heart. I know that we will all greatly miss her
wonderful spirit at Saint Ambrose. She has
done a wonderful job in working with Jurell
Sison over the past two months to transition
him into the leadership for our youth ministry
programs. God bless you, Alexa.
…All Junior High Students should be
thinking about Camp Samaritan. It’s two
days of service in our region. It’s a great way
to meet friends, make good use of summer days
and, mostly, it’s the wise person who serves the
Lord. That’s the foundation of love that
provides the blessings of God’s abundance in
our lives. If you would like some
information, please contact Ann Marie
Frattare at 330.460.7325.
… …A summer date for your calendar: The
FEST, our Catholic Family FESTival is on
Sunday, August 4, at the Center for Pastoral
Leadership in Wickliffe. It’s a FREE family
day filled with great music, activities, displays
and an inspiring Mass with 30,000+
people. The day ends with the best fireworks
of the season!! For more information, go to:
www.theFEST.us. This year there’s a special
Mom’s Relaxation Station – a place for moms
to get best ideas to take care of themselves,
their homes and families. There will be great
presentations and over 120,000 give aways/
samples. Come for FREE. Have a GREAT
family day. Go home with lots and lots of
FREE stuff. Spread the word
…As we wrap up the month of June, our
Parish Finance Council will be meeting this
week for their monthly meeting. I am so
grateful for your generosity and support for
our parish. I am also most grateful for their
guidance and direction to help our parish
make wise and good decisions. The end of
the month brings the close of the fiscal year.
Many thanks for all your support!
…Our parish is blessed with some really
wonderful folks who work in our Business
Office: Al Becka, Carol Maline and Lynn
Rogers. They do a great job for our parish.
BTW: Lynn Rogers has a birthday this
coming week…if you see, or know Lynn,
drop her a kind word
…Never deprived! That’s our opening prayer
this weekend. May each of us have the
wisdom to set our lives on the firm foundation
of God’s love. May you always know the
abundance of God’s sufficient grace. You
are in my prayers always, and especially during
this week of mission. Enjoy these summer

: “I ,
.” (Luke 9:23) At the heart
of each disciple is the choice of whether to
follow for the journey that lies ahead. Heading
into the unknown can be daunng and
overwhelming, especially for this doubng
Thomas and, along the way, we each find ourselves carrying one,
if not several crosses. Each cross in our life is different; some are
the burdens of illness, workload and responsibility while others
are the stress of relaonships, finances or the fear of rejecon
and loneliness. With all of this weight, we need to remember that
the heavier the cross we carry, the stronger we become in the
Lord. Each me I get into my car, I look at a visor clip that was
given to me by a good friend, which reads: “Lord, help me to
remember that nothing is going to happen to me today that you
and I can’t handle together.” Somemes, it can be hard to admit
that we need help but, when we remember that God is always at
our side, we can find the comfort and strength to li each cross,
carry it along the way with our fellow disciples and follow Christ to
love and serve the Lord.
