It might be the first time any Catholic parish in the Baltimore-Washington area has staged such an event, said the Rev. Richard Tillman, pastor at St. John the Evangelist. The revival, from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday on the plaza at Columbia's Wilde Lake Interfaith Center, is open to all as the church reaches out to those in the community who have yet to find a spiritual home.
