Artist Reflection of the NACAR Symbol
by Sister Catherine Martin, O. Carm.
Spiraling Motion: Mission… active involvement… on a journey as individual - as community… ministry of service… motion from within-outward and outward to center.
Center: Desire for deepening one's spirituality and relationship with God… may be symbol for one's individual center and/or community's center.
Cross: The transparent, yet real force which is the meaning, purpose, strength to the mission… called to witness the gospel… collaboration to a common purpose.
Labyrinth: Following the lines that form the design one can "walk" the labyrinth from the cross to the center… from the center outward through the cross.
