Join St. Ambrose Academy for a faculty speaker event featuring Ms. Theresa Klinkhammer, SAA religion teacher and Director of Student Ministries. Ms. Klinkhammer will share a talk based on a text that is a part of our senior high religion curriculum and is especially timely for Catholics who want to incorporate their faith more into their daily lives.

Blessed Columba Marmion was a leader of the liturgical renewal in the early 20th century. His book, Christ in His Mysteries, shows how we enter into the mysteries of Christ’s life by living liturgically.

This talk will first delve into Marmion’s thought concerning participation in Christ’s mysteries and then explore this idea through looking at the power of the propers of the Mass, especially those of the Easter season.


Tickets are $20 (cash only) at the door. If this is a hardship, please contact Vickie Manke.

Music, dancing, door prizes, photo booth, and light refreshments will be enjoyed! Post-prom ice cream sundae and walking taco stations will be available from 10:30-11:00pm.

Students may bring a guest, but will need to see the attached flyer above for obtaining appropriate permission. A guest ticket may be purchased at the door (cash only).

Students must have parental permission to leave the dance early.

No outside water bottles or backpacks will be allowed. Students should be mindful about their attire, behavior, and how they represent St. Ambrose Academy. Chaperones have the right to remove any student from the event if their behavior does not represent St. Ambrose Academy well.

Pilgrimage to the Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help
for the Success of the New Building Campaign

On Monday, February 14, there will be an all-school pilgrimage to the National Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help in Champion, Wisconsin – the only approved apparition site in the United States! – to beg Our Lady’s intercession for the success of our building campaign.

We would like to issue a warm invitation to families and those who care about our mission to join us, whether in person or in spirit!


If you are interested in coming to the Shrine on Monday, February 14, you will find the St. Ambrose group at the 11:00am Mass at the Shrine. The group will pray afterwards (some kind of novena/prayer and personal prayer) while smaller groups of ~20 take turns visiting the apparition site.

If you are unable to meet us at the Shrine in person, we encourage you to pray in a particular way for the students and the success of our building campaign this coming Monday.

With the Lord’s blessing and the collaboration of many, we will continue to see a flourishing of the faith among young people and families in south-central Wisconsin!

For the success of the New Building Campaign, on Monday, February 14 there will be an all-school pilgrimage to the National Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help in Champion, WI to beg Our Lady’s intercession for our new building.

This is the site of the only approved Marian apparition in the United States. Mary appeared to Adele Brise in 1859 and told her, “Gather the children in this wild country and teach them what they should know for salvation. Teach them their catechism, how to sign themselves with the sign of the cross, and how to approach the Sacraments. That is what I wish you to do. Go and fear nothing. I will help you.”

This call from Our Lady had been of great importance to the St. Ambrose community, and we trust that Our Lady will give us her help in the building project.

We will depart at 8:00am sharp and return around 3:30pm. We would love for many parents, families, and friends of SAA to accompany us on this journey of faith. Please contact Miss Klinkhammer if you would be willing to chaperone or if your family would like to caravan with us.

Because of Catholic Schools Week, the day-long Eucharistic Adoration for the month of February will be moved to Friday, February 11. We will need parent-adorers from 8:00am-3:00pm.
