Dynamic spiritual life is an expression that vividly describes the work of the Centre for Spirituality and Culture Ignatius which aims to bring Ignatiuan spirituality closer to everyone.

The association organizes diverse spiritual and educational programs. As a continuation of the popular 4-month-long online program "Being a Leader at the School of St. Ignatius", last year the Academy for Christian Leadership has been launched. The goal of the Academy is to enable individuals, associations, and communities to receive education in the field of leadership all in one place. The program is based on the 500-year-old Jesuit tradition of leadership.

As part of the Academy, several other projects were launched in 2023 - a series of public forums titled "Time to Talk: Leaders Among Us", the research on Christian leadership, and the "Network" initiative, whose goal is to connect Christian associations, communities, and individuals. From September, the Academy will launch another project: one-day workshops devoted to the topics of personal business and organizational improvement.

Leadership Summer School

This year was very significant for the Academy as a starting year for a lot of projects. In July for the first time ever the Leadership Summer School was organized. This six-day school was held with the aim of educating about leadership and the Ignatian spiritual tradition of leadership so that young leaders would be ready to be formed for the challenges they face today working in corporations, various organizations, and the Church.

Serving leadership, quality communication, conflict resolution, characteristics of a successful leader, time management and strategic planning are just some of the topics of workshops held as part of the Summer School. In addition to the spiritual program, participants learned about the concept of Christian leadership, and the importance of ethical, integral, and quality leadership for the functioning of companies, organizations, and the Church.

Leadership schools will be held in the future as well, and the great interest of participants in projects of the Academy for Christian Leadership shows how important the topic of leadership and Christian leadership is in Croatian society and Church.
