The Augustine Institute helps Catholics understand, live, and share their faith. The AI started 12 years ago as a graduate school for the New Evangelization. Today, 400 students are earning their degrees and will go on to be the next wave of teachers and evangelists. We wanted to equip Catholics not just with training, but with tools for the New Evangelization. The Augustine Institute launched FORMED, a state of the art multi-media platform, partnering with Ignatius Press, Catholic Answers, Bishop Barron’s Word on Fire, and Dr. Scott Hahn’s Saint Paul Center for Biblical Theology. FORMED now serves thousands of parishes around the world with a growing treasure of Catholic content. The Augustine Institute’s recent merger with Lighthouse Catholic Media makes it one of the largest distributors of inspiring Catholic talks.
