Saint Ambrose Catholic Church has a firm foundation and rich history within the community. Decades of equipment upgrades and additions slowly shifted focus away from the central symbols of the mass and the sanctuary. In addition to refreshing finishes, the new design adds hierarchy to properly balance the visual strength of the iconic original 1965 stained glass windows. Careful detailing and sensitivity deliver a stunning new altar and baptismal font, placed sensitively within a rejuvenated and hallowed space. Thoughtful modifications to historic pews will permit patrons in wheel chairs to worship with their loved ones. Upgrades to audio and decorative lighting redirect visual emphasis while improving audience experience during community musical events.
