Our Catholic Identity
The logo depicts a lamb resting on the book of scriptures and flying the martyr’s flag of triumph. Very prominent in the background is the cross of Jesus Christ.
Capturing the spirit of St Agnes, the lamb evokes emotions of kindness, friendship and love whilst symbolising a commitment to be steadfast in faithful service, just as Saint Agnes did. As the lamb proudly flies the martyr’s flag of triumph, we too are encouraged to retain courage and commitment in our faithful service.
The cross of Jesus Christ symbolises the epitome of love and self-sacrifice, ‘greater love has no man, than that he lay down his life for his people’ John 15:13.
The logo in its entirety symbolises a courageous commitment to serve as Disciples of Christ in celebration of the full spectrum of life.
