“The Catholic footprint in the north state is huge,” says Richard Cherveny, regional coordinator for youth and young adult ministry for the North State Catholic Revival of the diocese, as he explains the magnitude of work well underway within four deaneries and more than 30 parishes.

“We want to enliven our culture by living the Gospel,” and build a dialogue with all people, Richard heartily outlines, emphasizing the ultimate goals of “knowing the person next to you in the pew and beyond, catechesis, and engagement with the community Monday through Saturday.”
