About our Logo

Sacred Heart Greenwich student achievement goals criteria learning

The above logo of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, currently used by the Society of the Sacred Heart and Sacred Heart Schools across the globe, was originally designed by Oonah Ryan, RSCJ for a general chapter meeting of the Religious of the Sacred Heart in1982. The logo, expressive of the Society’s spirituality, was embraced by the delegates and has been used and adapted ever since by Sacred Heart schools and communities of the Society. 

The ribbon heart represents our hearts, the Society of the Sacred Heart, and the Heart of Jesus. At the opening of the heart is the cross, which calls us to be as open, vulnerable, and as welcoming as Jesus.

              It reminds us to embrace and treasure one another with the same love Jesus has for us.

In choosing to use this symbol as our logo we affirm our commitment to act as one Body, uniting our hearts with those of the Religious of Society of the Sacred Heart, ever inspired by the Sacred Heart of Jesus to be the heart of God in the world. Our common mission calls us to live as a responsive community that welcomes and embraces humanity and all of creation, transforming attitudes and practices when oppression limits the fullness of life, and being bearers of hope in our world.
