Cathryn Torgerson

Cathryn Torgerson fell in love with Scripture when working on her Master’s Degree in Theology. After graduation, she taught theology at Sacred Heart Major Seminary as an Adjunct Professor and became a founding member of the Catholic Biblical School of Michigan faculty. A year later, she left her corporate job to teach full time for CBSM. 

As a consequence of her teaching and work to coordinate development of the CBSM curriculum, she has outlined the entire Bible. She has a passion for helping people meet God through His Word and falling in love with their Catholic Faith.

Cathryn’s favorite Scripture is John 3:30, “He must increase, but I must decrease.”

Outside of CBSM, Cathryn loves to help adult Catholics grow in their faith. You can find her giving presentations for Advent teas, conferences, retreats, and general adult faith formation events.  Cathryn wrote a monthly column on the Sunday Gospels for Catechist magazine, and she is a contributor to the Living the Word Catholic Women’s Bible from Ave Maria Press. She enjoys traveling, reading, hiking, photography, and drinking a delicious cup of coffee or tea.

Fun fact: Cathryn used to work backstage in theatre!
