The Crest of the Evangelical Catholic Church
A Crest or Logo is graphic symbol used to identify a organization.
During the Albuquerque Formation Conference the subject of a logo was discussed. During one of the liturgies celebrated during included the Gospel of Matthew 13:1-9 most commonly known as The Parable of the Sower.
"That same day Jesus went out of the house and sat by the lake. 2 Such large crowds gathered around him that he got into a boat and sat in it, while all the people stood on the shore. 3 Then he told them many things in parables, saying: “A farmer went out to sow his seed. 4 As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path, and the birds came and ate it up. 5 Some fell on rocky places, where it did not have much soil. It sprang up quickly, because the soil was shallow. 6 But when the sun came up, the plants were scorched, and they withered because they had no root. 7 Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up and choked the plants. 8 Still other seed fell on good soil, where it produced a crop—a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown. 9 Whoever has ears, let them hear.”
This Gospel in so many ways helped us to have a better understanding of the future pastoral and sacramental journey that we would each be embracing.
We are deeply grateful to Anthony Morton for his design of our Crest and with humility we are proud to display it.
