A LETTER FROM MRS NULLEY
6th November 2014
Dear Parents, Caregivers, friends, boys and girls, and all associated with Mater Dei,
Idle Chatter
Have you noticed how talkative we all are nowadays? Never before have we talked so much nor had the opportunities to
do so: mobile phones, radio and its talkback, television and its reality shows, home audio and video recording. All these
means have increased our opportunities for speaking to one another, not only when we are together, but across great
distances. I’m not sure if there is any truth in the following quote but it did make me laugh: “I had a few words with my
wife, she had some paragraphs with me!” Author unknown. My husband did seem to think there was a lot of truth in this
for the Nulley household! He is probably right.
Much of our everyday communication is idle chatter about nothing; its real purpose is not to relay information but to
develop and maintain relationships. Generally, idle chatter and other light conversation can be value neutral and mostly
conducive to feeling at ease with yourself and others and in a workplace can be beneficial to productivity. Likewise, when
our children are engaged in light conversation, it enables them to bond more strongly with other family members and
adds to their sense of belonging.
So, how does idle chatter differ from gossip? Well, gossip is mostly negative and embarrassing to the person being spoken
about, it can rejoice in the misfortune of others, it can perpetuate conflict or negative images and it can be hurtful and
damaging. Gossip can break down the trust level within a group or even a community, because individuals start to secondguess each other and a once cohesive group or community can be fragmented and lose some of its effectiveness.
There is wisdom in the saying that, “A rumour goes in one ear and out many mouths” Author unknown. Schools
are places of employment for teachers and other staff; schools are communities where staff, parents and
students come together for the common good, which encompasses the welfare of all and the educational
progress of each student. For our community to offer an environment of harmony, goodwill, opportunity for
individual development and the exercise of Christian virtues, we all need to think before we speak, to think
about what we are saying and how we go about saying it. There can be a problem if we just talk for the sake of
talking and become indiscreet with what we say about others.
“God, our Father, in spite of the fact that you are all loving and forgiving to us,
our words and actions do not always express love and forgiveness. Rouse up and
sustain within us a friendliness and cheerfulness that is fitting for Christian
people. Amen.”
Prep Orientation
Last night, we held an Information Session for our Prep 2015 families. It was lovely to welcome some new families to our
school as well as continue our partnership with existing families. At this meeting, I introduced Dina Nona and Cath Hannan
as the Prep teachers for next year. All other staff placements will be announced in the last week of this term when I expect
all staffing to be finalised by this time.
Tomorrow, Prep 2015 children will be spending the morning at school. They will work in two groups with the teachers
whilst the parents are given further information about our school. We will also celebrate a lovely Liturgy involving our
current Preps, Year 5 (next year’s leaders) and the 2015 Preps and their families. My thanks to the staff and parents who
have assisted with these activities.
P&F Annual General meeting 17 th November
Have you thought about how you could get involved at Mater Dei? Would you consider being part of the P&F? There are
many positions needing to be filled at the AGM and we need you! I have spoken on many occasions about the great
community atmosphere so prevalent at Mater Dei. This is because people are willing to be involved and to give a little of
their own time and energy for the benefit of all. In fact, the benefit is really for the children or our community. Things
happen above and beyond what a school could normally offer because of the enormous generosity of people. These
‘above and beyond activities’ provide opportunities and memorable events for our children. We need people who can
step up and coordinate such activities so that these activities can continue to be afforded to the children. The many
social and fundraising activities also provide opportunities for the adults to meet, mix and have merry times together!
So please consider………is 2015 the year for you to get involved?
School Board
Last Tuesday night was our last official School Board Meeting for the year. I would like to thank the Board for their work
this year and the wisdom they have brought to our discussions and planning as we have worked through a range of
items. I would like to particularly thank Cameron McKenzie (Chairperson) and Michael Thorpe (secretary) for the past 4
years of dedicated service to the school as members of the Board. Both Cameron and Michael will be finishing their
association with Mater Dei at the end of the year as their children move to other independent schools. Their
contributions to the life of Mater Dei in their capacity as Board members and the pastoral support to Principals (both
Peter Delaney and then myself from 2012 onwards) has been much appreciated and valued.
Staff News
I previously communicated to parents via the newsletter dated 23/10/2014 that we would be moving through a
process of appointing three contract teaching positions at Mater Dei for the 2015 school year. This process has been
completed in accordance with the ‘Recruitment, Selection and Appointment of Teachers Procedure’ from BCE for
staffing appointments in 2015. This ensures that a just, equitable, consistent and transparent approach is actioned in
which every effort is made to ensure the best person is appointed to each role. I am pleased to announce the
appointment of Bronwyn Sikavica, Sherryl Shaddock and Rachael Reaves. We look forward to the gifts and talents they
will share with our community in the New Year. We congratulate Reffeech Chalmers who has accepted a position at St
Peter and Paul’s Catholic School, Bulimba. Reffeech is looking forward to working closer to home without the trek
across to the Northside!
I will be away from school next Tuesday and Wednesday at a professional development course.
Have a great week ahead.
Kind regards,
Kathryn Nulley

Dear Parents,
When young Tom was asked by his teacher if his family said a prayer before the evening meal, he replied, “We don't
have to, our mum’s a good cook”. Full marks to Tom. Obviously, he has total confidence in his mother and loves her
dearly. To be able to love his mum, Tom firstly has to love himself. Some people find that this is not always easy to do.
Holding a strong respectful image of ourselves is essential to self-love. Whatever our history has been, it is possible,
gradually, to learn to appreciate ourselves as a loving and loved person, a source of love for others and ourselves.
Tom’s mother has a recipe for self-love and she lists the following as the essential ingredients:





Be kind to your mind. Gently change your thoughts if they are negative.
Treat yourself as you would treat someone you really loved. Praise yourself.
Consciously generate positive thoughts and feelings in place of old thoughts of inadequacy.
Watch what you say; avoid self put-downs. Cease to be critical of yourself and others.
Relax. Let God love you.
It’s possible for us to drift along through life simply looking up to people in whom we see goodness, beauty and love,
because we do not see these qualities in ourselves. As a result, we begin to lean on others without realising that we have
everything we need to stand on our own two feet. The psychologist, Scott Peek, suggests that, “We are incapable of loving
another unless we love ourselves, just as we are incapable of teaching our children self-discipline unless we are selfdisciplined.”
It’s possible, even when we proclaim ourselves to be Christians that we don't love ourselves enough, to believe that God
loves us. It’s possible that we don't love ourselves enough to make sense in our lives of Jesus’ wonderful invitation to
“Love your neighbour as you love yourself”. So, “As we learn love, we become more empathetic, sensitive and appreciative
– with increasingly fewer conditions. As we learn love, we literally look forwards with greater confidence, enthusiasm and
hope. We find meaning wherever we are, because love does not bring meaning. Love is meaning.”
Stephanie Dowrick.
Here’s one of the great teaching parables of Jesus which we will use at our Mater Dei welcome to our 2015 Prep class on
Friday.
“The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed that someone took and sowed in their field. It is the smallest of all seeds
but when it is grown, it is the greatest of shrubs and becomes a tree so that the birds of the air can come and can make
their nests in its branches.” Matt. 13:31,32.
Here we can interpret a story about self-love starting out as something tiny and, as it is cared for, grows into an attraction
to which others are drawn. Tom’s mother has some ideas about the nurturing and Jesus has the invitation as to what to do
with the developed quality. May many birds choose to build their nests in the branches of your life.
Prayer
God, our Father,
We are thankful for our
existence and for the gifts
within us.
Help us to develop these gifts
so that we enjoy fully the
wonder of our life. Amen.

The Lateran
The Lateran Basilica is the cathedral of Rome. Pope Clemens XII dedicated the
Basilica to Christ, in honour of Saints John the Baptist and Saint John the
Evangelist and today is known as St John Lateran cathedral. The feast became a
universal celebration in honour of our Lord and it is a sign of love for and union
with the Vicar of Christ on earth. The Laterani’s family was the owner of the site
and two members of the family were consults, Sextius and Plautinus. In the time
of Nero, Plautinus was accused of conspiracy against the emperor, and his goods
were confiscated and the palace became Emperor Constantine’s and was given to
the Church. It was the oldest Cathedral and the birthplace of the Nicene Creed.
The building had gone through several disasters such as vandalism, fires and
earthquakes. After every fall the Lateran rose again, continuing to proclaim the
word of God.
It is not just brick and mortar but God who makes the church alive through his
people. By acting on God’s words and nourishing ourselves with the Body and
Blood of Christ we make it alive and that life flows through the Church. God
makes the Church alive through us. We are the community of faith who give
praise to God and show God’s love for the world. It is our duty to take care of
holy places and make them alive and care for the community of faith because
these are the signs that reflect the internal temple- our faith journey. Every time
we commit sin we inflict harm to our spiritual and physical body which is the
temple of the Holy Spirit. We regularly need to take care of ourselves by means
of prayers and penance and fasting as ways to rejuvenate the Holy Spirit.
Jesus during his life on earth several times visited the temple and complained that
people have turned the house of prayer into a marketplace. Deep in our hearts we
know that a temple is a sacred place and when in it we should keep quiet and be
reverent and respectful because a temple is a house of prayer. Our behaviour at a
holy place often gets carried away by the crowds. People talk in Church and I join
them and I presume that it is ok. We need to remind ourselves that following the
majority is not always the right and correct thing to do and it could unconsciously
tarnish the holy place we are in.
Jesus refers to the temple in Jerusalem as "my Father's house." It is God’s house
on earth where God dwells and it can only be recognize by faith. Jesus established
the Church on earth and Christ as our head and we are parts of that body. When
one part of the body gets hurt as a result the whole body suffers. We are temples
of the Holy Spirit because God lives in us and we live in God. We are united with
God through his word, through the sacraments and through the Body and Blood
of Christ. Today’s celebration is not about a place but it is about us.
Fr. Vudinh Tuong PP
DEDICATION OF THE LATERAN BASILICA YEAR A
Introduction: Today, we are reminded how God is ‘with us’ in sacred places,
especially in the Temple, and how this presence is fully realised in Jesus and his
community of the Church.
First Reading: Ezekiel 47: 1-2, 8-9,12
We hear a vision of the Temple in Jerusalem with its water as a source of life.
Responsorial Psalm: The waters of the river gladden the city of God.
Next Week’s Readings:
First Reading
Proverbs 31:10-13,19-20,
30-31
Second Reading
Thessalonians 5:1-6
Gospel
Matthew 25:14-30
Prayers for the Sick:
Julie Hopwood,
Jo Brewer
Sylvia McConnachie
Recently Deceased
Mary Johnston
Anniversary:
Andrew Mahoney
Murray Dick
Annette Condon
Prayers: Every me there is a

the prayers of faithful for 2
weeks and in the bullen for 4
weeks. Names of recently
deceased will be on the prayer
list for 4 weeks and in the
bullen for 4 weeks.
.
BEQUEST OR WILLS
All parishioners are asked
to consider including our
parish St John’s Wood/
The Gap in your will. One
of the greatest contributions you can make to our
parish is to ensure a legacy
of faith for the young and
to provide proper care for
the old.
Second Reading: Corinthians 3:9-11,16-17
The community of the Church is the Temple of God.
Gospel Reading: John: 13-27
Jesus takes a stand about the real purpose of the Temple and, from this, speaks of
the temple of his own body.
At the heart of the Eucharist are the words ‘this is my body given up for you’.
The Church as Christ’s body is called to share in that ‘giving’ - both as gift and
sacrifice. The Church, as the sign and instrument of God’s reign, shares in the
mission of Jesus. It is a community ‘for the others’, in other words, called to give
itself as servant for the sake of the world.

A VOCATION VIEW:
"Credibility" becomes
a household word, not
because there is so
much of it, but
because there is such
a lack of it. The
Church also needs
people who not only
practice what they
preach, but can also
preach what they
practice.

Children’s Rosary
" A special thank you to parishioners who continued the tradition (started by Mary Johnston) of
praying the Rosary each Friday of October with
the children at Mater Dei school" Mary Davidson

Feast Day of the Week –Dedication of the Lateran Basilica
On this particular feast day, it could surprise many Catholics that
the place that is acknowledged is not St Peter’s but rather, one
dedicated to the Most Holy Saviour. Inside its sanctuary, the Pope
has his cathedra, or chair (picture), thus making it the Pope's
Cathedral Church.
