Understanding our parish logo

Our parish is an amalgamation of two parishes: St Francis of Assisi and The Sacred Heart. We wanted to show both in our parish logo.  We were able to take an image of the Sacred Heart and the Franciscan logo and combine them.  The message is a powerul one: at the heart of the Christ is the cross, love and and sacrifice.  At the heart of Francis' life was the cross and a deep devotion to Christ so much so that he bore the wounds of Christ as portrayed in the hands showing the stigmata.  In a sense our parish logo shows us that all parishes can be united because they share the same mission to preach Christ crucified.
