I Wish My Dad

Join the conversation about shifting the narrative around emotionally healthy father and son relationships and loving our children well, sponsored by St. Ambrose.

This event will be a moderated discussion by Mycal Brickhouse in conversation with author Romal Tune and Kyndra Frazier, LMSW, M.Div.

What do sons wish they had received from their fathers? What might honest, healing conversations look like?

Saint Ambrose Episcopal Church is a welcoming community that gives worship to God, receives wisdom from God, and works alongside God to move the city of Raleigh.

Worship. Wisdom. Work.

Worship to God

We believe we exist to worship God and intentionally equip our congregation to give God praise.


Wisdom From God

Our wisdom comes from God and our church built on the legacy of African and African American Episcopal saints.


Work Alongside God

We prayerfully do inreach and outreach to impact the city of Raleigh through our inclusive community ministries.


Our patron saint, Bishop Ambrose of Milan, lived in Italy during the 300s C.E. According to tradition, bees landed on his face as a child, leaving honey on his lips. He was a gifted orator, earning him the name “the honeyed tongue preacher.” The bees and the beehive are historic symbols of Saint Ambrose.

We have two worship services each Sunday; 8 and 10:15am. We also have Bible studies on Mondays at 12:15pm and Tuesday mornings at 9:30 as well as a mid-week mass on Wednesdays at 12:15pm.
