The crest is the badge worn by all students in Loreto schools throughout the world.
The crest is surmounted by the title ~ Mary, Queen of Angels. This reminds those who wear it of the protective presence of Mary.
The design includes four symbols:
The Cross ~ the emblem of salvation.
The Heart of Jesus ~ symbolises His personal love for us.
The pierced Heart of Mary ~ depicting her courage as a guide for us.
The anchor ~ the symbol of hope encouraging us to trust God.
At the bottom of the crest are the words which bring us comfort on our journey through life. They read:
“Cruci dum spiro fido”
“In the cross, while I breathe, I trust”
