At the centre there are the initials of our family name in French, SdC, Sœur de la Charité… this is not because we want to be at the centre of everything, but because only if we have the Cross and the Light of Christ at the centre of our lives we may become a family which draws energy from the three symbols which make up our logo.

  • The sea 

    ✓ Reminds us of the width of the mission and the courage to go out into the deep to proclaim and live the Gospel at the service of the poor as Jeanne Antide said «I would cross the seas if it were the will of God»;
    ✓ It is a symbol of our openness to the internationality of our family and to the world, as all seas have harbours which keep them connected to people’s life on the mainland;
    ✓ It is a symbol of our wish to go there where we are called as a family in order to reach the world’s peripheries.

  • The cross

    ✓ it is designed at the heart of our acronym (designed with the ‘d’) because the cross reminds us of Jeanne Antide’s “God Alone”;
    ✓ it is at the heart of our spirituality rooted in Jesus Christ’s love;
    ✓ it is at the heart of the coat of arms chosen by Jeanne Antide which can be found in the church of Regina Coeli in Naples.
