The Reverend Mac Collins, supply priest

Fr. Mac is a native of San Diego. His ministry has all been in the Diocese of San Diego, where he served St. Paul's Cathedral, The Lutheran Church of the Incarnation, St. Bartholomew's, St. Mary's and retired after 19 years as Rector of St. Mark's City Heights. He attended Point Loma Nazarene University and has a PhD from Fuller Seminary and a years residency at The Church Divinity School Pacific in Berkeley. He lives in Bonita with his wife Connie.

Fr. Mac and Connie became Christ Church parishioners after Mac retired from St. Mark's. He is graciously serving as our supply priest until our interim rector arrives, at which time he will be happy to get back to being part of our service ministry team, listening to Connie sing in the choir, and enjoying other perks of retirement.

To speak with Fr. Mac please call the parish office (619) 435-4561.

Originally from the Philadelphia area, Nancy Funk moved around the country with her four children and Navy husband before settling down here in beautiful Coronado.  She has taught in various states, and was thrilled when she was hired as the fourth grade teacher here at CCDS.  That corner classroom was her home for 9 years before accepting the position as Interim Head of School.
