Supporting and Encouraging
Catholic Innovation

OSV Institute supports and encourages innovative and effective Church-related programs and activities helping Catholics fulfill their calling to discipleship, strengthen their relationship with Christ, deepen their commitment to the Church, and contribute to its growth and vitality in the world.

OSV Innovation Challenge

We established the inaugural OSV Innovation Challenge in August of 2019 as a catalyst for growth and innovation for Catholic entrepreneurs and creators. The contest has provided project incubation and acceleration for applicants and finalists, refining their ideas while building them as creators, thinkers, and Catholics.


OSV Innovation Talks is a series for inspiration, creativity, and innovation in ministry and evangelization, influenced by powerful talks from prominent Catholic leaders.


OSV Institute is a dynamic extension of OSV, which was founded in 1912 by Fr. John Francis Noll as a way to spread knowledge about the Catholic faith through periodicals, books, and parish resources. Today, OSV is the largest provider in church envelopes and one of the largest Catholic publishers in the world.
