(Extra) Ordinary Time Podcast

(Extra) Ordinary Time is a six-episode podcast series that features conversations between The Rev. Mary Davila and a different parishioner each session. This year’s theme is “Home,” focusing on what our homes have been like during the pandemic, and how the church has been a home for us. We hope you enjoy hearing from other Christ Church members about their journeys over the past two years.
