The Journey to Excellence program speaks to everyone, no matter where they are in their life journey. The solid philosophical principles rooted in our Catholic tradition foster personal insight for us individually and improve our ability to collaborate together for common goals.
Take the Journey to Excellence
The Spitzer Center’s core program, Journey to Excellence, provides a roadmap for visionary Catholic leaders and staff to build better habits for more dynamic and effective cultures of evangelization.
From regular seminars to create fraternity, a thorough culture inventory, and ongoing training and support, we apply timeless truths in innovative ways.
