    the crest

    Our logo is a cross and an open pomegranate. The cross is the universal symbol of Christianity. The pomegranate has a strong association with the city of Granada in Spain where our patron, St. John of God, lived. The abundance of seeds in the pomegranate is a reminder of God's endless love for us.
