Ireland-Celtic-Cross
 

Our logo is designed in the form of the centre of a Celtic Cross with different panels on each corner.

When St. Patrick came to Ireland in the 5th Century with the Christian message he found that people here worshipped the sun and the sunlight amongst other things.

From his experience here in his youth as a slave he knew and understood the Celtic and Gaelic society. Rather than trying to convince them that their beliefs were wrong he described the benefits the sun brought but also showed that it was not providing the full enlightened message.

By assimilating their existing beliefs into the Christian message his mission travelled the country gathering new believers wherever he went.

Over time the Celtic Cross developed, possibly in wooden form originally, then carved in stone as seen in the many high crosses throughout Ireland. It combined the round portion of the sun with the Christian cross, creating this famous Celtic/Gaelic icon.

As with many ideas, we tend to view new concepts with different coloured lenses or from preset viewpoints. By trying out different coloured lenses as the Irish did with St. Patrick, our own understanding can grow and develop.
