“I had the great blessing of growing up in a family in which faith was lived in a simple, practical way. However, it was my paternal grandmother in particular who influenced my journey of faith. She was a woman who explained to us, who talked to us about Jesus, who taught us the Catechism....This is how I received my first Christian proclamation, from this very woman, from my grandmother! This is really beautiful! The first proclamation at home, in the family!”
Pope Francis

SERVICE: Taking Care of His Suffering Body

Senior Parishioners

Here at St. Ambrose, it is our privilege to offer Christ’s preferential attention to senior parishioners in need of the companionship and assistance of the local community. 

Shepherd's Center of Fairfax-Burke

The center partners with individuals, faith communities, civic groups, and local government to meet the needs of older adults in the Fairfax and Burke areas of Northern Virginia. SCFB provides life enrichment opportunities and life support services for older adults so they can continue to live independently with a sense of purpose and dignity. SCFB programs are planned and executed by older adult volunteers. SCFB empowers its volunteers to use their talents and skills to help their peers in the community. Life Enrichment programs include Lunch N'Life (bi-monthly luncheons with speakers or entertainment and time for social networking), Adventures In Learning (a full day of classes-current events, art, history, literature, health, exercise-and time for social networking, offered for six consecutive weeks in the Spring and Fall), and Wednesday at the Movies (an informal group meets at a local theatre to see and discuss a film). 

Hours: 10 AM- 1 PM, Monday-Friday Address: 4019 Olley Lane Fairfax, VA 22032 Phone: (703) 323-4788 Web site: www.scfbva.org

Anyone who is suffering prolonged illness or who is homebound due to age or physical limitations can contact the Parish Office at 703-280-4400 for assistance. We will bring the Holy Eucharist to you and help to schedule visits from a priest for reception of other sacraments.

Small gestures of love, of tenderness, of care, make people feel that the Lord is with us. This is how the door of mercy opens.

Prayer of interior peace

Let nothing disturb you, let nothing frighten you. All things pass. God does not change. Patience achieves everything. Whoever has God lacks nothing. God alone suffices.-St. Teresa of Avila (1515-1582)
