Nora Creech has been interested in the Holy Shroud since the 1970s and has extensively studied the linen cloth. As an experienced lecturer on the history, science, and pastoral implications of the Shroud, she is eager to share the facts about the mysterious image and connecting it to the Gospel message.


Nora graduated from the University of Colorado, Boulder with degrees in Business and English.  After working in industry and raising her family, she returned to graduate school and in 2018 completed a Master of Arts in Faith and Culture from the University of St. Thomas in Houston, TX.  The goal of this degree is to prepare the laity to bring their faith into the public sphere to positively impact the culture.
