Saint Ambrose Parish Easter Bulletin 2019


April 21, 2019

“On that Hallelujah Day...they’ll be

singing and shouting…and joy flows like

a fountain on that day!”

HAPPY EASTER! What a blessed day as we celebrate

the joy of the Risen Lord – the promise of new life and

greater joy in Christ!!!

Throughout the Season of Lent, we have been reflecting

on the promise of heaven – ONE DAY – when we all get

to heaven. In the Resurrection, Christ opens for all of us

the way to heaven and the promise of eternal life. We

are so blessed! May each of us use this Easter to renew

our deepest desire to walk the path of the Lord that will

lead us to heaven to be with the Lord, and our loved ones,


This Easter is also a very special day for our community

as we walk into our renewed Church. It’s a blessing for

all of us to come together as one around the Table of the

Lord. The Church is one more expression of the goodness

of our members – all of us together – for the glory of

God. Thank you to all who have made a special gift to the

Lord and our community to help make this possible. The

best comment about the renewed Church came from one

of our middle schoolers who said, ‘it makes me feel so

peaceful’. May our Church, and our community, always be

a special place of God’s peace and mercy.

Over the past months, as we renewed the Church building,

we have been inviting all of our members to renew

their commitment to BE the Church – strong, committed,

faithful in building up God’s kingdom. So many members

have responded with a strong ‘yes’ to the Lord. Please use

this Easter to reflect on Jesus’ ‘yes’ for us and how you can

say ‘yes’ to the Lord.

We need 500 sets of hands to help us on Saturday, April

27 for our annual Community Service Day. All of us

working for a few hours on a Saturday morning can do

great good throughout our region. For more details, or to

sign up to help, go to, www.StAmbrose/Service.

The Summer Festival is coming soon (so is summer).

Please mark your calendar and make plans to help out

and join us for great family fun on June 20-23.

As we celebrate the joy of Easter, our Church – our parish

– is alive and strong by God’s grace and your goodness.

I pray that you may know the blessings of God in your life.

Please let me know how I/we can be of help to you and

your loved ones.

BLESSED EASTER! This is the day the Lord has made….

let us rejoice and be glad!

Thank you!

From the Nemet Family

‘Now Faith is confidence in what we

hope for and assurance about what

we do not see.’ - Hebrews 11:1

Our journey with Collin since his

diagnosis has been one of ups &

downs. We are so Thankful and so

Blessed to have such an amazing

Parish Family that has supported

us and loved us every step of the way. God’s love, through each

and ever one of you, has given us the strength we need to get

through each day. Thank you all for being there for us. As Father

Bob has always said, “I don’t know how people get through hard

times without Faith”...we continue to have hope and pray for a

miracle for Collin. It’s not our Faith though that will save Collin - it’s

HIS amazing Faith that shines through him everyday that lets us matter what, he will be okay. Thank You-from our family

to all of you, our Parish Family, for all you have done for us and all

you have meant to us through Collin’s journey.

God Bless, The Nemet Family

We humbly request that you please try to limit the

number of Masses scheduled per visit to the front

A Celebration of Easter Sunday, 2019 ♱ 7

Jesus Christ is Risen Today!

We celebrate the miracle of Jesus’ resurrection

and renew our faith as a Catholic community

because of it. We are called to be the hands

and feet of Christ each day of our lives. At

Saint Ambrose School, we live and breathe

Jesus Christ who is Everything for us.

Lent - our “spring training” - gave us the privilege and challenge of

walking one day at a time closer toward Christ. We built a “tapestry

cross” by meditating upon those things and thoughts in our lives

that make us broken and offering them to Jesus. Students and

staff were encouraged to bring broken items or pieces of items

as symbolic offerings and place them at the foot of the wooden

cross made by Mr. Mullen, our HSP Director. He then fashioned the

pieces on the cross to be an amazing visual of our bond in Christ

and our lives offered to Him. Fifth Grade’s Spirit-filled tradition of

leading Living Stations of the Cross and our Eighth Grade students’

leadership in presenting our annual school-wide retreat during Holy

Week brought us even closer to Christ’s passion, death and suffering

toward the glory of Easter. This year’s school-wide almsgiving

benefited the Rice Bowl project via our “Al Otro Lado” project as

we worked to help our Mission Possible family and the connection

we share. We are one family of God with different experiences,

perceptions and lives - one coin, two sides - Al Otro Lado.

Be sure to visit our website,, and

follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Please contact me or

Breanne Logue at for information regarding

registration for the 2019-2020 school year.

On behalf of the students, faculty and staff of Littlest Angels

Preschool and Saint Ambrose School, we wish you a Blessed Easter.

May the joy of our Risen Lord give you new life and hope!

May God bless you!

Lisa Cinadr | 330.460.7350

Littlest Angels Preschool

E is for Easter and Everything!

As we move in to the season of Easter,

we often reflect on the Passion of Jesus,

His sacrifice, His life and His love. Jesus

is everything for us! We share with the

preschool children two words, humble and

selfless. Humble, not thinking we are better

than someone else, and selfless, thinking of others before ourselves.

Humble and selfless are words we could use to describe Jesus.

Often we find ourselves complaining and arguing about daily tasks

or challenges in our lives. If we want the words humble and selfless

to describe us, we need to serve our family and our parish and more

importantly our God with humility and a good attitude. This is a hard

task but as we work to be more like Jesus, we remember God’s words,

“Do everything without grumbling or arguing.” Philippians 2:14.

God bless you this Easter,

Catherine Mitchell

Stations of the Cross, our Spring Retreat, and much, much more. As we head into

the Easter season, please keep our teens in your prayers, most especially our 9th

grade students as they prepare to celebrate the Sacrament of Confirmation on

Sunday May 5th with Bishop Amos.

Teens & parents – keep an eye out for a full Summer Events calendar coming

out in the next few weeks! We have a lot of exciting things coming in the next

few months and look forward to having you all join us!

Wishing you and your families a blessed Easter season.

Ablaze Junior High PSR Youth Ministry

Another year has gone by so quickly for our Junior High students. We have

watched them grow in their faith and continue to pray that they will continue

to live by example on their journey. We are thankful for the team of Junior High

Catechists that anchor our program week after week. They are appreciated!

During the Summer Months… we will continue to offer opportunities for

Junior High teens to gather and use their many talents to help others, while

fostering bonds between one another. On Summer Service Wednesdays, teens

will have the opportunity to lend a helping hand by doing projects at nearby

community locations. More details to follow at

Join us at

help do something wonderful!

Sign up online at

“Embark in the Service of God” Summer Camp… Teens will

be making a difference in the lives of others at locations such

as Saint Augustine Hunger Center and Haven of Rest Ministries.


But don’t think that we don’t have a little bit of fun planned

too… we will be visiting attractions such as the USS Cod and

the Akron Zoo. You don’t want your teen to miss out on this life-changing service

camp! Registration forms are available at

VBS Volunteers… this year’s VBS program, “ROAR!” is sure to be a big hit

with our elementary students. As in years past, we hope the many Junior High

teens that sign up to help will lead by example and enjoy the week as much as

the students. This year, “ROAR!” is taking place from July 8-12. Please be sure

to sign up to volunteer for either the morning and/or afternoon session by the

deadline date of May 15. Volunteer at

FEST Bus… Join other teens and their families to help

organize/prepare Mom’s Bags that are handed out at the FEST

each year. Transportation and Lunch will be provided at this

all-day excursion that runs from 8am – 5pm on Tuesday, July 29.

Saint Ambrose Jr. High Summer Service Camp

Junior High Volunteer Picnic… Any teen participating and/or

volunteering in any of the Ablaze programs this summer is invited to the Teen

Volunteer Picnic! This picnic and evening of fun is our way of thanking you for

following in the footsteps of Christ by helping those around you.

Invites to follow.

Children and Teen Envelopes

Our Young People’s Incredible Gifts

Every week, our young people contribute

to Saint Ambrose–not only through

monetary gifts, but through their actions.

Here are some of the ways our kids have

been like Christ in our community:

“I prayed for my family.”

“I add money from my allowance

to my envelope.”

“I helped my cousins during break.”

A Celebration of Easter Sunday, 2019 ♱ 9

Young Adults (20’s and 30’s)

Happy Easter from Saint Ambrose Young Adults!

This Lent, many young adults from our parish participated

in a small faith sharing group, growing closer to God and

each other. We also had an excellent Good Friday retreat,

preparing and renewing our hearts for Easter.

Saint Ambrose Parish

Athletic Boosters Meeting

experiences, opinions and ideas to help to expand

and improve our Saint Ambrose sports program. Help

us grow in the right ways to serve as a focal point for

youth sports and Christian athletes in the area.

Be sure to stay up to date on faith, service, and communitybuilding

opportunities. Visit

Campaign Update

God bless our good members!

805 families pledged $4,855,161.29 and

have been paying faithfully. To date, just

over $1.6 million has been received.

Members from every generation and from very

diverse backgrounds have made a beautiful

sacrificial gift and contributed to our Generations

of Faith Campaign…high school students, young

families, the elderly, married, single and widowed

have all given, and sacrificed, to make this Church

renovation possible. It has been humbling and

inspiring to hear the stories of generosity. Our

church is filled with such good and generous

people. Regardless of what the inside or outside of

the physical church looks like – our church was, is

and always will be beautiful because of the people

in it!

As people have ‘snuck in’ to see the church over

the past few weeks, they’ve been inspired by

what they saw, and excited to get back into

their church for Mass! Several have been so

moved that they decided to either make a

pledge or increase their current pledge.

It’s not too late to sponsor an item in

memory of a loved one, as you will see below.

For a complete list, contact Jake Bihari or 216.215.5015

Mother Mary Patio (outside the family room) $20,000

Welcome to St. Ambrose Parish Sign $12,000

Stations of the Cross (7, 8 10 & 11) $10,000

Church Renovation Update


An incredible amount of work has been done since we closed

the church on December 26th! God bless all the volunteers and

workers who labored tirelessly to make this possible! There is still

some work to be done, some final touch ups and minor things,

but overall, we are in GREAT shape!

The Chapel renovation will begin this week... We did not

complete the South vestibule so as to not damage the finishes as

we demo and work in the Chapel... Some of the doors and other

hardware have not yet arrived, so temporary ones have been

installed. The interior is pretty well ‘buttoned up’. They’ll continue

working on the exterior finishes for the next few weeks (pray

the weather cooperates!). Landscaping will be completed once

everything is said and done and all the machines are off campus!

We are hoping our actual Mary statue will be completed

in May... Our goal was to get all the essential items for Mass

ready for this week, with a few of the other items following over

the next month or two. We’re also hoping a few ‘sponsors’ step

forward to help fund the stone relief of St. Joseph.

What has been especially striking is to think of the before

- and after - of the ‘old’ church and the newly renovated

church. The lighting... the quality of the sound system... the area

around the Mary statue... the baptismal font... the area around

the tabernacle... the altar... the ambo... the stations of the cross...

the pews, etc. etc.

A complete financial summary will be presented at the

end of this project. In the meantime, thank you for your

generosity and for your continued support.

Any gift would be greatly appreciated!
