The crest reflects the two books of Saint Luke – the Gospel of Luke and the Acts of the Apostles. The first Book deals with the Life of Jesus and ends with the command to bring His Gospel to the ends of the earth. The second Book is an account of the Church carrying out this mission. The arrow going out from the centre depicts this mission.
Our motto is also a powerful theme of St Luke: A people ever made New by the Death and Resurrection of Jesus, and prepared to bring this Good News – at any costs – to the ends of the earth
