“He always invites us to take a step forward, but does not demand a full response if we are not yet ready. He simply asks that we sincerely look at our life and present ourselves honestly before him, and that we be willing to continue to grow, asking from him what we ourselves cannot as yet achieve.”
Pope Francis
Evangelii Gaudium, 153
EDUCATION: Formed in His Communion

Adult Faith Formation

The pursuit of a relationship with Jesus is a life-long work of grace and perseverance. As St. Ambrose himself once wrote,"every age is mature for Christ!" (De Virginitate, 40).

Adults are encouraged to seek the companionship of parish friends who follow Christ through the life of his universal Church, and often pursue these timeless practices:
Frequent reception of the sacraments
Daily readings
The Rosary
Continuing education

Sunday Mornings:
Jesus, Mary, and a cup of Jo'

This ministry began as an opportunity for parents to enjoy some coffee and discuss faith at the same time their children were in Religious Education classes. Currently, meetings are open to all adults in the parish who would like to refresh their own "religious education" on Sunday mornings in the St. Ambrose School Gym from 8:45-9:45 am.  For more information please call Laura Mead at (703) 280-1122 or Lmead@stambroseva.org

Lightworks "Lectio Divina" Meetings

In recognizing the thirst of many for a deep sense of spirituality based on a more intimate relationship with Christ, Lightworks is aimed to bring about this experience in a communitarian atmosphere.  The program will meet for 14 straight weeks, in which the participants will share the fruit of their reflection in a friendly setting of small groups of 8 people.  There will be printed materials to give guidance for the participants to reflect on passages of Scripture.  The overall direction of the 14 weeks of reflection is to attain the love of God in a personal level, and with this direction, a participant will journey through experiences on the Incarnation, the Passion and the Resurrection.  The next 14 week session will begin in January 2014.  For any questions please contact: Tien Dao at:  Tiendao@cox.net or 703-963-1075

Meeting times:  Thursdays, 7-9pm
