Where We Serve: Phoenix


Phoenix is an easy city to navigate, though a car is a must. The Valley houses a sprawling metropolis where one can rub elbows with the wealthy and refined in Scottsdale, the co-eds in Tempe or the salt of the earth in Goodyear. Phoenix boasts of many fine dining establishments (including In-n-Out) and offers sport-enthusiasts endless entertainment (can you say Spring Training? oh and Go Cardinals!). Recreational activities abound in the city from hiking Camelback Mountain to golfing to floating down the Salt River.

  • "I said 'yes' to ACE as the opportunity to share both the joys and challenges of teaching with fellow newly qualified teachers was both an exciting and a motivating prospect. The ACE program also gave me the unique opportunity to grow and develop my spirituality in a deeply meaningful way both through community living and through the medium of teaching, particularly in disadvantaged areas where compassion, understanding, kindness and the ability to impart knowledge will help the more vulnerable in our society to grow, develop and prosper while understanding the Catholic ethos."
