Pastoral Care is a priority at St Ambrose. We attempt to support people at times of ill-health, stress and bereavement and also to support them at times of joy and celebration particularly through baptisms and weddings.

The Pastoral team comprises the Vicar and Reader but also a growing number of specialist "Pastoral Assistants".
