A Mass of Thanksgiving & Celebration

Alumni, families, and benefactors of St. Ambrose Academy are warmly invited to join us in celebrating Fr. Michael Wanta’s ordination to the priesthood! Since his graduation from St. Ambrose Academy in 2013 and throughout his discernment process, many from our community have prayed for Fr. Michael and have eagerly awaited this day.

Fr. Michael will celebrate Mass and then those gathered will enjoy a reception to greet Fr. Michael, receive a blessing, and enjoy some fellowship with the broader St. Ambrose Academy community. Beverages and snacks will be provided including the Chocolate Shoppe Ice Cream Truck for a cool treat and beer generously donated by Karben4 Brewing!
