Augustine Institute to open in Denver

.- For years, Tim Gray has been dreaming of a theological institute in Denver that would blend solid theology with practical evangelization tools. Next fall, that dream will become reality as the Augustine Institute opens its doors for lay people seeking to spread the Gospel more effectively. The Augustine Institute, which will make its home in the Archdiocese of Denver, offers accredited Master’s degrees in Evangelization, Catechesis and Sacred Scripture.

“I’m thrilled that this dream is becoming reality”, commented Gray. “The school is a marriage of practical skills and great theology.”

Those slated for the school’s faculty include noted theologians, Dr. Joe Burns, Sean Innerst, Curtis Martin, and Augustine Institute’s president Jonathan Reyes.

“I think we have a top-notch faculty”, noted Gray, “I’m honored to be working with them.”

Archbishop Charles Chaput has said that he believes the Institute “will some day draw young people from all over the world and train them to take the New Evangelization back to their homes, parishes, schools and communities.”

Even though word is just beginning to spread about the institute, Gray commented that the “initial feedback has been fantastic” and that, applications have been steadily flowing in.

“I think we’ll end up with more applicants than we can take”, he said.

The structure of the Augustine Institute is based on three major components; intellectual formation, character formation and practical training. The school says that this structure will “form Catholic leaders who embody in their lives what they know in their intellects.”
