After returning to the Faith while studying business at University of San Diego, Richaél Lucero earned a master’s degree in theology and Christian ministry from Franciscan University of Steubenville. She strives to manifest the Lord’s command in Matthew 28:19 to “go and make disciples of all nations,” as part of the Catholic Answers marketing department and as the host of the Catholic Answers podcast Clumsy Theosis.

Richaél and her husband appreciate the expression of the mysteries of the Eastern Catholic churches and participate in the Byzantine Rite liturgy, where she sings in the choir and he is an alter server.
