OC CATHOLIC RADIO: ONE OC PARISH + ONE SONG = YOUTUBE SENSATION

On today’s program, host Rick Howick welcomes our special guest, Andrew Everson to the studio. Andrew is the Director of Music at St. Joachim Church and School in Costa Mesa, CA. When the COVID-19 crisis struck and churches became closed to the public, Andrew was inspired to write a song. He did just that – and we’re going to talk about all the fascinating details behind “What a Great Day It Will Be: A Song of Hope.” In addition to Andrew, we’re also joined on the program today by two parishioners of St. Joachim who have been involved in a unique way during this process: Arianna Garcia and Cynthia Morehouse.
