We extend a cordial welcome to you to Saint
Ambrose Parish, Little Hocking, Ohio. Over
the years many parishioners and friends of
our parish have sacrificed a great deal of
time, talent, and financial support to make
this holy place possible. It is a building
set aside for prayer, education, and social
functions and is a gift to the honor and
glory of God.
We ask God's blessing on all who enter this
holy place. The church is a place not only
where people gather, but also a place where
God gathers with us to nourish us,
strengthen us and console us with His Word
and His Sacraments.
