Student Motto ‘Be Not Afraid’
The motto ‘Be Not Afraid’ appears significantly and frequently in scripture reminding us of God’s constant presence and help. Specifically we recall Jesus speaking to peter as he walks on the water.
The College colours are burgundy, grey and gold. The burgundy is appropriate to St Peter being a colour with both martyrdom and leadership within the church. The gold is the colour in which the keys are portrayed on the Papal flag. The crest features the keys of the kingdom as promised to Peter on a grey background which represents the storm. Below the fishing boat with its mast in the form of a cross, the net spreads out from the fishing boat…. “I will make you fishers of all people”. The motto “Be Not Afraid” is an invitation for all to move outside of their comfortable existence and be challenged, with the constant presence of Christ in our lives, to actively contribute to the building of the Kingdom of God.
