Company Information and History
The Augustine Institute is a registered 501(c)(3) Corporation. Our mission is to serve the formation of Catholics for the New Evangelization. Through our graduate school, media, and parish programs, we equip Catholics intellectually, spiritually, and pastorally to renew the Church and transform the world for Christ.
In 2005, as a response to the call of Pope St. John Paul II, Catholic scholars established in Denver a graduate school dedicated to transforming Catholic education for the New Evangelization. Since then, the Augustine Institute has become the fastest-growing Catholic graduate school in the United States and has quickly expanded into a multi-faceted institute providing strategic, disciple-based parish programming and leadership formation to dioceses and parishes across America.
In July 2015, the Augustine Institute and its partners launched FORMED, our digital, state-of-the-art, online platform (often referred to as a "Catholic Netflix"), which makes available the best Catholic content from a host of leading Catholic apostolates.
In November 2015, the Augustine Institute entered into a merger with Lighthouse Catholic Media, which included its Parish Consultant independent contractor sales force; the Parish Kiosk Program, CD of the Month Club Program, and other channels; and what is now the Ignatius Press-Augustine Institute Joint Publishing Venture.
