Our Crest

The rich symbolism of the crest is derived from the Order of St.Benedict.

The open book of the Scriptures with the Cross resting on it symbolises God’s Word and prayer as central to the life of each Sister.

The olive branch above the book is the symbol of the peace which Christ has promised to all who faithfully serve him; the well-known Benedictine PAX.

The scroll bears the Latin words “In omnibus glorificetur Deus, reminding us in the words of St Peter (1 Pet 4:11) that we should so live and act that:

In all things may God be glorified.
