*In compliance with Canon 216 of the Code of Canon Law, we have changed the name of the “Saint Augustine Institute of Catholic Studies” to the “Saint Augustine Institute of Wisdom.” During our Baptisms, we each received a pinch of salt as a “sign of wisdom.” The new title of our institute reflects our desire to seek after wisdom, particularly the Eternal Wisdom, Jesus Christ – as well as respect for Brother Francis, whose lectures are a sure source of Catholic wisdom.
