Life in the City

Nestled between the Santa Ana mountains and the Santa Ana River, there's plenty to see and do in the city. Our community is also less than 10 miles from the coast and the sparkling waters of the Pacific Ocean. Santa Ana is home to a great mix of Mexican cuisine and some of the most cutting-edge of OC’s restaurants.

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

What could be more important than striving to know our Lord with and through the students we are blessed to teach? Catholic Education is one of the most essential elements for the continuation of the life of the Church in this country. It is my prayer that the Holy Spirit may use me in whichever way He sees fit to best proclaim the Gospel. I am so excited to share our most precious and holy faith in our Catholic schools. Therefore, I answer this call to serve with a resounding “yes”!
