Youth Ministry

Dear Youth Ministry Families,

Please watch the video above for important information regarding our 2020-2021 year of Youth Ministry. As mentioned in the video, W.O.W. (Word on Wednesdays) will only be for grades 9-12 this year to allow us to gather safely.
Many of our 7th & 8th graders are students here at St. Ambrose and are receiving their religious education while at school.  Those who attend another school are encouraged to participate in at-home Family Catechesis through our Religious Education program.  More information and registration is available on our website @  Once it is safe to have all of us gather together again, we will be sooooo excited to have you join us!
For our 9th-12th graders, we will begin meeting OUTSIDE on Wed, Sept. 30th from 8:00-9:00 p.m.  Please meet us in the back parking lot and we'll direct you where to go. We ask that you bring a bag chair or a folding chair.  We will be meeting in our small groups for the entire year, which will be similar to last year's groups.  All group activities, Lectio Divina, and prayer time will be within our small groups. In order to keep everyone safe, please remember to wear your masks.

If you have any questions, please call the Parish Office at 812-522-5304 and ask for Ms. Chris @ ext. 322.

St. Ambrose Youth Ministry meets throughout the school year on most Wednesday evenings from 8:00 – 9:00 p.m. in the youth area, which is upstairs in the Parish Center, for W.O.W. ~ Word on Wednesdays.

We usually begin with a purposeful game and then break into small groups for Lectio Divina ~ reflection and discussion about the coming week’s gospel and how we can apply it to our daily lives. We close with group prayer, including prayer requests, and night blessings. Our goal is to help students grow in their identity as Catholics, as well as foster friendships with people who share their faith.

Any Middle School and High School students and their friends are welcome at any time!

Young adult and parent volunteers are always needed as mentors and chaperones for special service projects and events. 

Here are just a few of the things we do…..

  • “We Care” Packages for college & military students
  • Leaf Raking
  • Community Diner (soup kitchen)
  • Souperbowl of Caring
  • NCYC (National Catholic Youth Conference)
  • ICYC (Indiana Catholic Youth Conference)
  • Salvation Army Bell Ringing
  • Mission Trip 


El Ministerio de Jóvenes en San Ambrosio se reúne durante todo el año escolar la mayoría de los miércoles por la noche de 8:00 a 9:00 p.m. en el área de jóvenes, que está arriba en el Centro Parroquial, para W.O.W. ~ Palabra los miércoles.

Por lo general, comenzamos con un juego intencional y luego nos dividimos en pequeños grupos para reflexionar sobre Lectio Divina ~ y discutir sobre el evangelio de la próxima semana y cómo podemos aplicarlo a nuestra vida diaria. Cerramos con oración grupal, incluyendo peticiones de oración y bendiciones nocturnas. Nuestro objetivo es ayudar a los estudiantes a crecer en su identidad como católicos, así como fomentar amistades con personas que comparten su fe.

¡Cualquier estudiante de secundaria y preparatoria y sus amigos son bienvenidos en cualquier momento!

Los adultos jóvenes y los padres voluntarios siempre son necesarios como mentores y acompañantes para proyectos y eventos de servicios especiales.

Estas son algunas de las cosas que hacemos...

  • Paquetes “We Care” para estudiantes universitarios
  • Rastrillo de hojas
  • Comedor comunitario (cocina de sopa)
  • Souperbowl of Caring
  • NCYC (Conferencia Nacional de Jóvenes Católicos)
  • ICYC (Conferencia de Jóvenes Católicos de Indiana)
  • Sonar Campana de Salvation Army
