Augustine Institute

The Augustine Institute serves the formation of Catholics for the New Evangelization.

The Lighthouse story is a simple one: God works powerfully through a sincere Yes!

From a wooden box of cassette tapes in the back of one church, to over 6,000 parishes distributing our CDs, books, and other media with a Lighthouse kiosk – it has been an incredible journey!

Lighthouse Catholic Media, NFP is a 501(c)(3) Not For Profit Company that seeks to answer the call for a New Evangelization. We specialize in promoting the Catholic Faith through high quality presentations on audio CDs and MP3s from many of the best Catholic speakers in English and Spanish. We continue to expand our outreach by offering additional forms of media, including books, booklets, pamphlets, and more.

Real People. Real Results.

It is truly inspiring to see how God has used Lighthouse Catholic Media to powerfully impact countless lives in just seven years of operation. Through God’s grace, we have distributed more than ten million great Catholic audio presentations across the globe since our launch on August 15th, 2005, and we now work with over 7,500+ parishes and individuals in 110 countries. We continue to receive incredible feedback every day from listeners and from parishes who are participating in our various programs.

We invite you to watch the following videos featuring numerous listeners who have been inspired and enlightened by our CDs in different ways. And we ask that you pray that God continues to work powerfully through this Apostolate!
