Feast Days for the Coming Week: Thursday is the Solemnity of the Ascension. In normal times this would be a Holy Day of Obligation. On Friday we celebrate St. Matthias, chosen by election to replace Judas Iscariot.


The Month of May: Sadly, it is unlikely that we shall be able to have our May Procession in honour of Our Lady this year, but it should be possible for us to gather in the Rectory garden at 4 o’ clock on Sunday afternoon May 30th for the Rosary & May Devotions. NUALA THOMPSON has kindly consented to crown Our Lady’s statue on behalf of the whole Parish.

School ‘Diversity’: As a Catholic community, one of the most important lessons we will ever teach is about diversity. Teaching about the Importance of Celebrating Different Cultures and Diversity will help grow children of Saint Ambrose to have the best start in life . Did you know that being culturally aware can have a significant impact on success? “Diverse classrooms promote creativity, high level thinking, and collaboration.” All classrooms represent different backgrounds, cultures, ethnicity, language, religion, and physical ability. Being diverse is defined as all the ways we are alike and different. For this reason every half term we will be celebrating a different culture with members of our school and parish communities. On Friday 9th July from 2pm - 5pm at the Parish Centre we will be celebrating the Filipino culture with members of our school community and parish. Please keep the date free and if you would like to be involved in organising the event please contact E. Brocklesby via email ebrocklesby@st-ambrose.worcs.sch.uk


St Ambrose’s School ‘Smarties’ Challenge: During May pupils are being encouraged to help raise funds for the school by giving each child a tube of ‘Smarties’ sweets. Once the sweets are eaten, each child/household fills the tube with coins (1 pence, 5 pence, 20 pence or £1) and returns the change-filled tube, named and sealed,  to the School by May 27th. The class that raises the most money will receive a prize.


Please pray for: Trina Cole, Pat O' Doherty, Peter Strangward, Peter Hesketh, Jessie Tolley, Annie Holcroft, Veronica Pugh, Sheila Mikulicz, Edward Sage, Jackie Sands, John & Audrey Choyce, Shirley Keogh, Joyce Berry, Clare Conway, Fr. Graham Wilkinson, Matteo Butera, Madonna Endeley.
