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, training our students to proclaim the Gospel with new “ardor, methods, and expression,” as Pope St. John Paul II insisted. What began as a graduate school 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.org, 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 Kiosk Program, other channels, its audio content (CDs and mp3s), and what is now the Ignatius Press-Augustine Institute Joint Publishing Venture.
