Mary Ward (1585 - 1645)

Foundress of the Institute of the Blessed Virgin Mary

School Crest

"Maria Regina Angelorum"
which indicates the patronage of
Our Lady, Queen of Angels.
The emblem is rich in symbolism:
The Cross - sign of our Salvation,
The Sacred Heart - Source of the infinite love of
Jesus for each one of us,
The Heart of Mary - Our human model and
The Anchor - symbol of hope.
This symbolism is summed up in the final scroll: "Cruci Dum Spiro Fido”. “Throughout my life,
I shall place my hope in the Cross".
