Dr. Scott Hahn Bio

Dr. Scott Hahn is the Fr. Michael Scanlan Professor of Biblical Theology and the New Evangelization at the Franciscan University of Steubenville, where he has taught since 1990. He is the Founder and President of the St. Paul Center, an apostolate dedicated to teaching Catholics to read Scripture from the heart of the Church.

Dr. Hahn has been married to Kimberly for forty years, and together they have six children and eighteen grandchildren. Two of their sons are currently in priestly formation with the Diocese of Steubenville.

The author or editor of over forty popular and academic books, Dr. Hahn’s works include best-selling titles Rome Sweet Home, The Lamb’s Supper, and Hail Holy Queen.

A former Presbyterian minister, Dr. Hahn entered the Catholic Church in 1986.

Over the last three decades, Dr. Hahn has delivered thousands of popular talks and academic lectures, nationally and internationally, on a wide range of topics related to Scripture, Theology, and the Catholic faith.

Cardinal Collins Bio

Born and raised in Guelph, Ontario, Thomas Collins was ordained a priest in 1973. He considered other paths, but was inspired by a high school English teacher who suggested he should consider the priesthood.

He earned undergraduate and master’s degrees in English, later pursuing theological training in Rome. Specializing in the Book of Revelation, he earned his licentiate in sacred scripture from the Pontifical Bible Institute and a doctorate in theology from Gregorian University.

He was named Bishop of St. Paul, Alberta in 1997 and Archbishop of Edmonton in 1999. Pope Benedict XVI appointed Archbishop Collins as Archbishop of Toronto in December 2006. On February 18, 2012, he was elevated to the College of Cardinals in Rome. Cardinal Collins was one of 115 cardinal-electors to participate in the 2013 Conclave in Rome, where Pope Francis was elected to succeed Pope Benedict XVI.

Dr. Mary Callan Bio

Dr. Mary Callan was born in Brooklyn, New York, and raised in Colorado where she first sensed (and subsequently ignored) a call to religious life. After earning a degree in Agronomy and a Ph.D. in Bioagricultural Sciences, she went on to begin a corporate career as a research scientist. This eventually led to a global career in business development in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries, overlapped with over a decade working in fund development consulting for numerous nonprofit organizations. Still feeling that “God-shaped hole” in her life, she returned to answer God’s call to religious life, and served Christ as a Sister for 7 years. As the community she was associated with was dissolved, she returned to life as a faithful layperson, serving as assistant to Dr. Scott Hahn and Apostolic Administrator to the nonprofit he founded, the St. Paul Center for Biblical Theology. In November of 2019, she became Director of Development for the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe founded and led by Raymond Leo Cardinal Burke in La Crosse, Wisconsin. Dr. Callan is a member of The Society of Catholic Scientists, the International Marian Association, and the Association of Fundraising Professionals. She is currently in formation as a Marian Catechist through the Marian Catechist Apostolate, under its International Director, Cardinal Burke.

Dr. Josephine Lombardi Bio

Dr. Lombardi has worked as a parish minister, university campus minister, high school chaplaincy leader, teacher educator through O.E.C.T.A., professor of Religious Education, Brock University, retreat facilitator, faith formation consultant, and program coordinator in the Diocese of Hamilton. Presently, she is Associate Professor of Pastoral and Systematic Theology, Professor of Field Education, and Director of Lay Formation for St. Augustine’s Seminary in Scarborough, Ontario. She has done media work in radio and television and has been an advisor to the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops in the area of doctrine and Catholic-Muslim relations. Her books On Earth as it is in Heaven and Experts in Humanity have been featured on Salt and Light TV.

More recently, she has been appointed Series Theologian for the new Religious Education curriculum for grades 1 through 8, “Growing in Faith, Growing in Christ” for Catholic School Boards in Ontario, Alberta and Saskatchewan.
