The Diocese of Pensacola-Tallahassee, founded in 1975, covers the 18 most northwestern counties of the State of Florida. Although our diocese is young, its roots go back to the first settlement of this region by Europeans, when in 1559 Don Tristan de Luna, on behalf of the Spanish crown, established the first settlement in what was to become the United States of America. The settlement was abandoned in 1561 due to hurricanes that destroyed the settlers supplies.
Our diocese enjoys the distinction of being a "dual see" diocese -- that is, it has two centers from which the Bishop governs: Pensacola and Tallahassee. Each see city has a cathedral - the Cathedral of the Sacred Heart in Pensacola and the Co-Cathedral of St. Thomas More in Tallahassee.
The Editor of The Catholic Compass, the bi-monthly diocesan publication of the Diocese of Pensacola Tallahassee is a part-time position, with the possibility of becoming full-time. The editor will determine content and, with the help of a layout designer and publishing partner, coordinate production of the magazine. The vision of the magazine is to highlight inspiring stories about members of the community and act a key mode of evangelization. Applicants should be organized and service-oriented individuals who see every moment of communication, in both positive and negative situations, as an opportunity to share the love of Christ with others. Applicants should be boldly committed to evangelization, with a desire to find creative ways of spreading the Gospel.
