IMPACTING THE U.S. CHURCH

While Catholics make up about 20-25% of the U.S. population, the Church’s numbers are still declining. As immigration patterns, evolving generations and secular culture influence the Church’s numbers and diversity, church-related programs are in need of support to welcome, educate and engage these groups. OSV Institute serves a number of religious activities to support the re-engagement of unaffiliated young adults, Hispanics and Catholic parents across the country, as well as inspiring and investing in innovative ideas in ministry and evangelization.


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.
