Cosmic interpretation of the Holy Cross Emblem

The three green hills symbolise the earth. The blue background speaks of the sky above us. The cross is implanted in the earth and forms a bridge connecting the earth with the sky above us. The radiant, silver cross is a manifestation of the crucified and risen Lord. Sun, moon and stars symbolise the universe or cosmos which gives praise to its Creator. “He is the First-born of all creation …….” (Col 1:15).

Our Charism

The mystery of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ is central to our spirituality as Sisters of the Holy Cross.  According to the gospel and the challenges of our time we risk new ways and commit ourselves to promote life.  In a holistic approach to persons we encourage them to recognise and use their gifts and talents.  In collaboration with others we awaken hope and contribute to the transformation of society.
