Motto and Crest

our school - motto and crest

 

The motto of Our Lady of Sion College is 'VERITAS IN CARITATE'. These words, 'Truth in Love', capture the essence of the passage in Ephesians 4:11-16 from which they were taken. The passage issues a call to all God's people to grow into unity with one another and full maturity centred in Christ. By respecting and encouraging the diversity of gifts possessed by different individuals, the community will guide itself to greater strength through love.

'Speaking the truth in love' is the way to draw people towards maturity. The indecision and changeable loyalties of youth can be transformed into a consistent orientation of values. In any community there are also some who have been hurt by negative experiences but who are able to grow and mature through love.
