A new campus for the “New Evangelization”

.- After 18 years without a Catholic presence at Loretto Heights Campus in Denver, Colorado, the Augustine Institute has succeeded in bringing Christ to the campus in the form of a Catholic graduate school in response to JPII’s call for a New Evangelization.

Loretto Heights, initially founded as a primary and secondary school by the Sisters of Loretto in 1891, evolved into a nursing college and, after financial difficulties, was sold to the Teikyo Group, a Japanese university system in 1988.

This past summer, the Augustine Institute moved from its rented space at the John Paul II Center for the New Evangelization in Denver to the top floor of the Teikyo Loretto Heights administration building, the highest point in Denver.

The new location, which means new classrooms, a chapel for the school, a student lounge, and the convenience of having the professors’ offices near each other, has been well-received by the current students and administration.

Director of Admissions, Sandra Chamberlin, told CNA, “Our new location at Loretto Heights is a complete blessing from the Lord.  When we received permission to have the Blessed Sacrament on campus, I knew the Lord had great things in mind for our time here at Loretto Heights.”

She continued, “we prayed for a new space for the school, and the Lord, in His great goodness, gave us access to an entire campus.”

Having a new “space” has benefited not only the college academically, but current second-year student, Julie Reiff added, “This new location gives both students and faculty the ability to develop the Catholic community that the Augustine Institute has always envisioned.”
