Main

Logo

 

Our logo is an international symbol with the words serviens in spe which is Latin for Service in Hope.

The eye of the Fish is the vigilant eye of God seeking out to help the poor and underprivileged in our midst. The colour red in the logo represents the passion of Christ in his love and compassion for us all but especially the poor. The crossing at the tail or a tie-knot represents unity and oneness among members and also in union with the poor. The loop (round circle) signifies the global or worldwide stature of the SSVP, an international Society. The fish tells me that we are fishers of men or that our role is to teach those we serve how to fish. This symbol says a lot to us. Wear it proudly.
