Life in the City

It is impossible to live in Pensacola without frequently enjoying its white sand, lovely beaches! Pensacola is probably most well-known for the large Naval base (which is located just a few miles down the road from St. John’s). It has a lovely historic district and down at the beach, it has a great boardwalk full of shops and eateries. The weather in P’cola is wonderful. Hot summers and mild winters—it can get cold from time to time, but just enough to make one appreciate the usual climate.

Why did you say "yes" to serving children in Catholic schools through ACE?

I want to serve as a positive role model for children that don't already have one to rely on. I want to create disciples out of the children and make sure they know how much God loves all of them.
