Barbara MA ’90 and Norman Shanahan, MTS ’89

Emeritus Executive Director Catholic Biblical Studies Program Buffalo

Barbara and her late husband Norman assumed leadership of the Catholic Biblical Studies program in Buffalo, New York in 1991 and expanded it to multiple sites in parishes all over western New York State. Barb has enriched parishes with her knowledge of Scripture as well as her abilities to organize and present scripture-based programs in a variety of settings with excellent speakers and presenters, many from CTU. Barb took the knowledge of Scripture that she learned at CTU and shared it with people in her community. She helped to train others to do the same. Thus she has instilled a love and understanding for the Word of God thus fulfilling Christ’s command to go out and preach the gospel.
