Welcome to Lumen Institute

Enlightening leaders, pursuing excellence, influencing culture


Lumen Institute provides faith-based formation for leaders and was founded in 2005 by a small group of New York businessmen, a few members of Regnum Christi and Legionary of Christ priests.

Bob Infanger (left), BJ Agugliaro (right), and Steve Auth (center) aka theMissionaryofWallStreet. These guys are business executives and total stalwarts of faith, boldly going out on weekends to the streets of Manhattan to welcome people with open arms into Saint Patrick’s Old Cathedral in SoHo. I was first introduced to each of their families through the youth leadership work that I did as a Regnum Christi missionary a decade ago. Like many of the men who are active in the Lumen Institute, these guys keep very busy schedules, with high stress jobs finance and banking in New York City. In my early 20s I looked up to guys like this tremendously for their leadership in business as Catholics. Now that I am balancing work in finance myself after years as a consultant busy with young children, I respect them even more for the work they’ve accomplished for their families and for the church. I think it was their example that planted the seeds for 10x Your Talents many years ago. It was an honor and a blessing to be able to serve alongside them on Saturday afternoon in Mew York City and I am looking forward to future missions with themissionaryofwallstreet! If you’re in NYC today (11/16/19) and want to see what it’s all about, head down to Old St. Pat’s and talk to a missionary. One of them will surely be there to welcome you to go in a light a candle! . . . . . . #10xYourTalents #leadership #business #lumeninstitute #evangelize #catholicleader #catholicmindset #catholic #catholiccoach #catholiclife #catholicconnect #catolicos #catolico #soyrc #catholiccommunity #iamrc #catolicismo #proudCatholic #catholicblogger #stephenjcaruso ...

My friend frjasonsmith snapped this photo fun the sacristy while I was cerebrating Mass this morning. He takes some epic pics! The location didn't hurt either... Epiphany today: the three Magi were willing to risk a lot to follow a star to an unknown place where they were already planning to give away some very expensive gifts. God rewarded then with peace, joy, grace, Love in their hearts. Afterward they would know it was all worth it (and more!). Herod, on the other hand, wasn't even willing to make a short hour's journey by horse from Jerusalem to Bethlehem. He was afraid this new King would take everything away from him. He listened to the lies which told him to eliminate this threat, kill it. His reward: paranoia, fear, constant anger and suspicion. What would have happened if he had genuinely sought to go and give Him homage? . #lumeninstitute ...
