Parish Financial Update
We recognize that this time of uncertainty caused by COVID-19 carries financial realities that we could never have anticipated. Our prayers are with the many families who will face hardship because of the impacts of this pandemic. Like so many businesses and churches, we also know that Saint Ambrose will face financial challenges during this time. Please be assured that our parish leadership and the members of the parish finance council have been working diligently to ensure the financial health of our parish in uncertain times. With fewer people attending Mass in person, the budgeted income of Saint Ambrose has been impacted. We are taking steps to reduce costs and adjust our expenses. Like so many of you, we are tightening our belts. We are forever grateful for the generosity of so many members of our parish family. You make the ministry of Saint Ambrose possible. Thank you to those who have chosen to mail in your Sunday envelope as continued support of our parish in these uncertain times. We are thankful. We humbly ask for the continued support of our parish family.
For those that are able, contributions can be made to the parish by mail, by taking advantage of our automatic withdrawal (ACH) process, or by contributing via the parish app. Click HERE to contribute by credit card. You may also call our parish Business Administrator, Greg Hereford at 651-768-3010 for any questions you may have. Thank you for supporting the ministry of Saint Ambrose. May God bless and protect us all.

There are several ways to donate
Many parishioners prefer to use weekly envelopes. These envelopes are sent automatically to your home on a quarterly basis direct from Church Budget Envelope Company. If you would prefer to use another form of payment or just don’t want the envelopes, please contact us so that we can keep costs low and save paper too!
Electronic Fund Transfer
EFT is one way to make contributions consistent, no hassle with filling out a check along with saving a tree! No paper envelopes, it is very easy! The program is available to all parishioners for your stewardship giving as well as our building fund. Withdrawals are taken on the 2nd of the month, the 18th of the month or the 2nd & 18th of the month. The automatic withdrawal form is below. You may mail it back to the parish office, bring it direct to the parish office or drop it in the Sunday collection

YEAR END GIVING & STOCK DONATIONS
We have new account information for you to provide to your advisor if you are making a stock donation. Also, on March 27, 2020 the President signed into law the Coronavirus Aide Relief and Economic Security – CARES Act. The law is designed to help combat the impacts of COVID-19. The bill provides increased tax incentives for charitable giving for both individuals and corporations.
