Emissary Program

The Augustine Institute Emissary Program aims to create communities of volunteers in parishes who help to engage and ignite the faith of parishioners and support the pastor in his vision to win the world for Christ.

The Emissary Program equips and inspires this team of missionary disciples with prayer, training, and resources so they can help parishioners better understand, live, and share their Catholic faith.

The Augustine Institute also supports the emissaries' personal spiritual growth with Masses and prayers from over seventy-five Religious cloisters, as well as a free subscription to FORMED and the Lighthouse Talks Download of the Month Club.

Ways to Support the Augustine Institute


With a commitment of just 30 minutes a week in prayer and service you can make a difference.


There are many ways to evangelize at your parish: sharing FORMED, as well as CDs and books, leading small groups and helping with the sacramental preparation. We can help you find a role that matches your gifts.


Become a monthly supporter of the Augustine Institute by joining the Mission Circle.

Emissary Program

"Being an emissary for the Augustine Institute provides me with the opportunity to share with and learn from emissaries in all parts of the country. We are able to pray with and for one another, offer tips on what is working well at our home parishes, and develop strategies to improve our evangelization. As an emissary we have developed into a band of brothers and sisters who deeply feel the mission of the Church to "go into the whole world and spread the good news.”

“Knowledge of the Catholic Faith isn’t enough. In order for knowledge to nourish the body of the Church it must be broken down and sent forth as directed by the Holy Spirit. Emissaries do not provide knowledge, rather they are like enzymes guided by the Holy Spirit sent to breakdown the food of knowledge to help nourish the body of the Church. How rewarding it is to have even a small role in all this good work.”
