Tau Cross & Anchor

The Tau Cross or crux commissa is one of the four basic representations of the cross on which Jesus Christ was crucified. It is widely considered to be the most historically accurate representation of Roman crosses during the time of Jesus. 

The Anchor represents St. Brendan the Navigator, a Catholic explorer from the 5th-6th centru A.D. He is the patron saint of our home parish.

The Alpha, The Omega

The Beginning and The End; used in Revelation to describe Jesus Christ as having existed for all eternity. The Ancient Greek characters Alpha and Omega mark the beginning and end of the Greek alphabet.

Ancient Roman catacombs host some of the oldest depictions of these characters in juxtaposition. Such inscriptions were made by the early Church, in hiding from persecution by Roman authorities.

Chi-Rho

The Chi-Rho was an early Christogram, created by the Catholic Emperor Constantine of Rome.

While it bore resemblance to the Tau-Rho Christogram already in use, the Chi-Rho found its place among the many symbols of Christianity known today. Presently, the Chi-Rho is one of the best documented Christian symbols, used in Catholic Churches across the world.
