It’s been a pleasure for the Diocese of Palm Beach to be associated with the Going Deeper program for the last five years. Our teachers have grown in their knowledge of the faith and in their own faith journeys through the Going Deeper weekly messages delivered by Jonathan and his wife Karen. In addition, Jonathan has come to our diocese twice to keynote professional in-service days for our faculty and administrators. Jonathan lives what he speaks and his personal witness and journey enhance his powerful message that we are supported in our efforts through our faith. Our faith gives us the strength and wisdom to provide children with what they need from a Catholic school. Teachers leave his presentations inspired and equipped with the Tools and Fuels they need to create faith-filled classrooms.

Weekly PDF Staff Discussion and Prayer Journal

Every school is so busy. Video content is super quick, engaging and flexible.

Holy Cross Catholic School, Henderson is certainly among your No. 1 fans for the GOING DEEPER online faith formation for teachers in Catholic Schools. I know the Holy Spirit certainly has a hand in directing you to us.

We use GOING DEEPER every Monday morning at 8.00 am for our Staff prayer, reflection and weekly guidance before we begin our Admin meeting. It forms a very important part of our spiritual weekly faith walk.

Thank you again for all the work that you do to evangelise to us the Good News of Jesus Christ. We will continue to pray for you and your family in your ministry.

Barbara Stepanic
Director of Religious Studies

Participating as a whole school staff with the Going Deeper program has given us all a common starting point for discussion and the sharing of our faith. We have learned about and been supported in our beliefs that we are vital to the development of those children in our care; spiritually, emotionally, physically and academically. I would recommend this program highly as a wonderful addition to any schools prayer/faith life.

Our staff have gathered to watch our last session as a group for the year. I would like to pass on our thanks to you and your team for the Going Deeper programme.

It’s a big success from our point of view and has helped us refine, rethink and renew.

Great growth in understandings, teachings and faith for individuals as well as the group.

Staff Discussion And Prayer

What an answer to prayer Going Deeper is! A product of Catholic School education my whole life, for the first time I find myself really reflecting on the mission of a Catholic School. I am so grateful for the reminder that we are living out our calling and vocation as Catholic educators. I have benefited tremendously from the emphasis on making time for personal prayer and silence.

Gemma Ward
St. Vincent Ferrer Catholic School

We began using the program a year ago January, after you spoke at the Archdiocese of Los Angeles’s Principals Meeting.

It is changing our faculty. It gives us time to discuss our faith, and it helps us bring the new teachers into the fold and help them understand our mission.

Dr. Linda Wiley
Holy Trinity School

Love the program.

It gets to the real meaning of our faith in language that just makes sense.

This provides the opportunity to share, reflect or just sit individually with it.

Staff love it!

Thank you.

Principal St. Joseph’s School

Frequently Asked Questions

How Long Does Going Deeper Take Each Week?

In terms of how much time is involved each week it can be as much or as little as you wish.

Each weekly video is about 5 minutes long but comes with personal refection journals so that people can sit with the content and explore it more deeply.

Many schools use the weekly video and staff discussion and prayer guide to start the weekly staff meeting. So, in summary your staff can do as little as 5 minutes per week over 40 weeks, adding up to about 3.5 hours per year or they could choose to do a little more time each week using the reflection guides.

Perhaps you are asking this question with reference to accreditation or maybe in terms of the busyness of school life. Either way the program will work. It can be a quick weekly ‘shot in the arm’ or a deeper more reflective process linked to accreditation outcomes.

Can We Trial Going Deeper?
Absolutely. You can take a free trial of content for three weeks. Just CLICK HERE
Does your program have an Imprimatur or endorsement from my diocese?

Now that the program is in hundreds of schools around the world we have not tried to match the content to the exact curriculum frameworks of multiple dioceses.

What we can tell you is that you are on very safe ground with the content. It was developed from extensive post-graduate study and is completely supportive of authentic and orthodox Catholic teaching. All content is drawn directly from Church documents.

What Is Each Module About?

In terms of the title of the modules, we simply follow the core Church documents on Catholic education. So the titles are related to key themes in those documents each week. Every week we aim to simply ensure the content is consistently relevant to teachers as you can see from the samples. Usually, when people ask this question it is geared to knowing that the content is authentically Catholic and engaging. You are on very safe grounds on both counts.

We don't have a credit card can we pay by cheque?

Unfortunately, we don’t accept cheques. We now have hundreds of schools with us from around the world and you can imagine the issues involved in accepting cheques in multiple currencies etc. We are also taxed heavily and charged extra bank fees for any transfer costs on a cheque as well.

Our standard advice is not an ideal solution but it’s the best we can offer at the moment. That advice is simply that someone at your school places the order on their personal card and then is immediately reimbursed by the school. We know it’s not ideal but it always works out as the best solution.

We generate two receipts at the moment of purchase so either of those can be given to the school bursar or accounts people for an immediate refund.
