Fr. Ament had several scenarios in mind for being active in his retirement years. But when Archbishop Hanus suggested some ministry at Clarke, he leapt at the idea. He says, "The several years I worked at St. Thomas Aquinas in Ames were very positive years for me. So here I can once again getting reacquainted with, serving in some small way, and being rekindled in my spirit of hope and promise for the future church by the young men and women. The Lord bless the endeavors of us all!"
