Care and Prayer

A Spiritual Home When Life is Hard

Life often can be difficult or present the unexpected and we want to be there to provide support and prayer. If you or someone you know is in need of care or prayer, please learn more about the areas and organizations that can offer assistance.

You can also notify the church office at (651) 768-3030 if you are experiencing difficult times, and we will look forward to reaching out in ways in which the parish can help.

Are you in need of Christian care and someone to listen?

Stephen Ministry is a national program that seeks to provide a biblical solution by equipping God’s people – the church – for ministry. The Saint Ambrose Stephen Ministry is made up of everyday, ordinary people who are gifted and trained to provide confidential, one-to-one Christian care to individuals in our community who are experiencing difficulties in their lives. If you would like to connect with a Saint Ambrose Stephen Minister, contact Barbara Peña at (563) 419-8698 or Mike Regnier at (952) 454-5293.

Are you looking for someone to pray with or pray for you?

Saint Ambrose parish is here to support you in your concerns and specific needs through personal prayer. If you or someone you know is in need of God’s help and would like someone from our Intercessory Prayer Group to pray for or with you, connect with Deacon Dave ([email protected]).

Do you feel stuck, in need of healing, or simply need a moment with the Lord’s goodness? The Encounter Healing Prayer Ministry team is composed of parishioners who have a heart for seeing God’s people whole, and are gifted with the charism of praying with others for spiritual, emotional and physical healing. Teams of two are available to pray with you between Masses on Sunday mornings. Learn more about the Encounter Healing Prayer Ministry and opportunities to pray together by clicking here.

Are you unable to attend Mass to receive the Eucharist?

The Saint Ambrose Catholic Community offers outreach opportunities to parishioners and individuals that are sick and homebound. Members of the parish, who are Extraordinary Ministers, visit the homebound to bring Communion and see if there are additional needs that can be met by the parish. If you are interested in someone visiting you or someone you know, please reach out to the Parish Office.

Are you in search of a pregnancy care network?

The parish works with Woodbury Options for Women, a clinic that offers free services and support to women that feel abortion is the only choice when facing an unplanned pregnancy. Woodbury Options for Women empowers women to make informed, safe, and healthy decisions based on their circumstances. If you would like to learn more, do not hesitate to direction questions to the Woodbury Options for Women at [email protected].
