Wish List

Funding for a week long institute with Light the World has generously been provided by a grant from Lilly Endowment Inc. We have been privileged to watch this program come into being in the School of Theology and Religious Studies at The Catholic University of America.

In order to see it grow, and see our institute host more and more faithful high school students each summer, we will continue to rely on the generosity of others.

If you are able to support our program in any way please do so online or via phone: (202) 319-6524.
