About Mike and Theresa Farnan: Mike Farnan graduated from Seton LaSalle in 1985 and graduated from the University of Notre Dame (1989) and from Notre Dame Law School (1993). Theresa Farnan grew up near South Bend, Indiana, and also graduated from the University of Notre Dame (1989) and received her master’s degree and PhD from Notre Dame as well (1991, 1998).

Mike has worked as a Deputy Attorney General under Mike Fisher, a Seton LaSalle graduate and current Federal Judge; agency Chief Legal Counsel under Governors Ridge, Schweiker and Rendell, before entering private practice as General Counsel for Branding Brand, an established tech company in Pittsburgh that creates mobile sites and apps for major retailers and hotel chains.

Theresa has been formation faculty at Mount St. Mary’s Seminary, consultant to U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops Committee on Marriage, Family and Laity, lecturer at Franciscan University of Steubenville, and is currently a philosophy instructor at St. Paul Seminary in the Diocese of Pittsburgh.
