Our Foundress

The Cross stands for Christ's redeeming love. The Star stands for the Virgin, Mother of Christ our beacon light. The Lily stands for St. Joseph, revered for his purity and integrity. He represents the royal house of David, symbolized by the crown. The combination of virtue and knowledge is our goal, for knowledge without virtue can fill us with pride, and virtue without knowledge is restricted and unappealing. This perfect combination is seen only in St. Joseph, our Patron Saint.
