important message regarding the archdiocese filing for bankruptcy

On Friday, January 16, 2015 the Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis filed for a financial reorganization under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code.  Since Saint Ambrose is a separate corporation, this does NOT immediately affect Saint Ambrose of Woodbury - including our school, ECEC, and Extended Day programs.  Answers to many concerns are provided in the following links to the Letter from Archbishop Nienstedt and the list of Frequently Asked Questions.  Of course, we remain very concerned and are keeping in prayer all victims of sexual abuse.
