The Loreto Crest is older than the history of Loreto in Australia. It is made up of four symbols which hold an important place in our lives.
The Cross, which is the symbol of our Christian life and our faith in Christ; the Sacred Heart of Jesus, which symbolizes Jesus personal love for each of us; the Heart of Mary, depicting her courage as guide for us; the Anchor, the symbol of hope encouraging us to put our trust in God.
The Latin words, ‘Maria Regina Angelorum’, mean ‘Mary, Queen of the Angels’. The motto ‘Cruci Dum Spiro Fido’ means ‘As long as I live, I put my trust in Christ who died for me’.
