Wow!! I am impressed!!
Today I was in the city for a PD on Prayer, but I emailed ALL staff with the link last night and allocated our Curriculum Coordinator to present the video and Journal Reflection task tonight at our Staff Meeting. Our Principal also endorsed the program Going Deeper and encouraged everyone to participate fully. I left a personal folder for each staff member to store reflections in as they work through videos.
Tonight I have spoken to a staff member who said it all went well and was a good video; not heavy, confronting or demanding, but very thought provoking!
So your good news is fantastic, as that was the main concern at our end.
Many thanks for your constant contact and assistance. Looking forward to seeing how this all goes, and the impact it has on our staff. I will monitor it closely and send you any feedback.

Following on from our Diocesan (Lismore) wide, staff faith enrichment event Proclaim, the timing of Going Deeper could not be more profound or relevant for our staff. For too long, teachers of all subjects within Catholic schools have felt the need to leave the hard questions posed by inquisitive students to “Religion” teachers. In a Catholic school, we are all called to be Witnesses to the faith and hence should all be such teachers. What Jonathon and Karen have compiled here is a succinct, engaging and thorough package that arms all teaching and ancillary staff in our schools with the necessary knowledge and confidence to answer those questions and provides the opportunity to enhance their own faith formation. Thanks!

We have been using this amazing resource since its beginning and have found it to be a real gem. In true Jonathan style, each week is concise and encouraging. Ever aware of the demands of our time, Jonathan and Karen invite us to go deeper with the various dimensions of a Catholic Education in the 21st century. The added advantage is the additional mp3 file, the personal journal and the staff discussion that are an integral part of each week’s mailing. Already, we have found it to be a great tool for bringing a common vision and purpose that enhance our Religious Studies Department. Whether you have a little spare time or a lot, you won’t be disappointed with this resource. Top marks to Jonathan and the team.
