About Katrina…

Katrina J. Zeno, MTS, has been speaking and writing on Pope John Paul II’s theology of the body for over 18 years. She earned her BA in Theology from Franciscan University of Steubenville and her Master’s in Theological Studies (MTS) from the Pontifical John Paul II Institute for Studies in Marriage and Family in Washington, DC.

Katrina is the author of three books and over 50 articles, and has recorded two television series on the theology of the body (for EWTN and the Apostolate for Family Consecration) as well as numerous radio interviews. She is currently the coordinator of the John Paul II Resource Center for Theology of the Body and Culture for the Diocese of Phoenix, Arizona, (www.tobcenter.org) under the leadership of Bishop Thomas Olmsted.

Any one who meets Katrina immediately realizes she has been entrusted with a specific mission in the Church – to present John Paul II’s difficult and life-changing vision of God and the human person in more ordinary language. She is a gifted catechist and teacher whose passion involves drawing out the catechetical riches of theology of the body to spark a deeper encounter with Jesus Christ, to broaden an understanding of the Catholic faith, and to expand each person’s ability to love.

Through her life’s journey and its unexpected bumps in the road, Katrina has acquired a wealth of experience via marriage, prayer, suffering, single parenting, participation in a Catholic community of families, speaking internationally, and living in Steubenville, Ohio, for 23 years.

Katrina is privileged to pursue a full life that includes hiking, swimming, traveling, dancing Argentine tango and salsa, learning Spanish, playing table tennis, developing deep friendships, and spending time with her married son Michael and his lovely wife Morgan.
