Loreto Crest

The Crest of the school

This beautiful and familiar crest is the badge that Loreto learners wear. It distinguishes them as children of Mary.

The words of Maria Regina Angelorum, mean Mary Queen of Angels.

The place of honour in the design is the Holy Cross, the emblem of our salvation, to take the Lord's invitation, to take up our cross daily and follow him through the difficult paths of our lives. 

The Sacred Heart crowned with the cross helps us realise that love is stronger than death, and from this we may draw the strength we need to deal with sorrow and difficulties. 

The Heart of Mary, our Queen and Mother, encourages us to imitate her and embrace generously all that is needed for salvation. 

The Anchor of Hope is placed in our hands to keep us firm and steadfast amidst the storms of life.

"Cruci dum spiro fido"

 the words that mean-'In the Cross, while I breathe, I trust'
