Mary’s Touch™ is an inspirational 30-minute radio program designed to bring you a greater understanding of Jesus’s Mother, Mary. The program is co-hosted by Cheri Lomonte, author of The Healing Touch of Mary and Stories from Mary’s Touch, and Fr. Jim Evans, the spiritual director for the Frontline Faith Project.
Each show includes one personal account relating the experiences of people who, in unique and desperate situations, have invoked the intercession of our Blessed Mother and received her help in ways that are sometimes very striking, or sometimes more quiet and more interior.

Cheri Lomonte is an author and co-host of the award-winning radio program, Mary’s Touch. Her first book, The Healing Touch of Mary was published by Divine Impressions in 2005. It features stories from people who have been graced by the intercession of our Blessed Mother. While collecting stories for her second book, Cheri became convinced that these stories needed a wider audience. In 2006, she created Mary’s Touch, a nonprofit organization committed to advancing Our Blessed Mother’s “YES.” Cheri resides in Lakeway, Texas with her husband, Tony. They are blessed with six children and nine grandchildren.
Before Fr. Jim Evans' ordination to the Catholic priesthood in 1994, he lived several adventures: he met a beautiful young woman in France and married her. He served in the United States Air Force (Intelligence), earned an advanced degree in Public Administration from the University of Southern California, and was an NDEA Fellow at Georgetown University. He built successful careers in government and the private sector, and he traveled the world. He even sat next to the queen of Jordan at a state dinner in Cairo. Before entering the Episcopal seminary in Austin, Texas, where he earned a master’s degree in Divinity, Father Jim also studied economics at West Texas A&M. While serving as rector at St. Francis of Assisi Episcopal Church, Fr. Evans focused on social concerns. It was this work that got the attention of Bishop John McCarthy, of the Catholic Diocese of Austin. He soon set up an office for Father Jim in the diocesan chancery, where they worked with Monsignor Richard McCabe to expand Caritas within the community. Fr. Evans was inspirational in launching “Jericho Time” on KIXL 970 AM. It was the first show hosted by a Catholic on that station, and that station is now Relevant Radio!
