Mission Statement

Mission Statement

Our Sunday Visitor Institute seeks to serve the Church by supporting and encouraging innovative and effective Church-related programs and activities that help 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.  The four areas of special interest for funding are evangelization, catechesis, vocation and advancing the culture of life.


Our Sunday Visitor Institute is a dynamic extension of Our Sunday Visitor, Inc., that supports the mission of the company in a way that both heightens public awareness of Our Sunday Visitor’s mission and strengthens the effectiveness of the entire corporation.


Our core values include fidelity to the teachings of the Catholic Church, fiscal responsibility, cultural responsiveness, collaboration and innovation.


Our Sunday Visitor Institute is undergoing a re-envisioning process to further refine our giving priorities. Thus, we are not accepting applications at this time. Please check back later in 2018.
