Based on the image above by Sister Ana Dura, CSR

This image depicts the Trinity, community, and the world.  We have all come from the same source – God, who is Trinity.  Three persons who are one.  The circle of light is “Father;” Dove is Spirit; Jesus, our Redeemer is center.

All people and all creation  are created for community/relationships.  We all desire oneness and wholeness; life flourishes in community.   We come from one source and we seek to come together in this life around a common belief, a common mission : that all may know the healing love of our Redeemer.

The circle of persons symbolize our Congregation.  We are formally made up of women from 3 countries.  There are additional persons in this image – perhaps the other branches of our founding congregation; perhaps all the people who participate in the mission and Charism entrusted to us – Associates, co-workers, Redeemer Ministry Corps, etc.  The circle is outward facing and there is motion.  The feet symbolize our Congregation stepping forward: to the needs of the world ; to a future of hope.
