"Our Hope Is in the Resurrection"
These words, which form the motto of our House system, speak to our faith as Catholics and shape the way in which we educate and learn at Resurrection school. A brief explanation of our House Shield:
The Laurel stands for victory and excellence in academics and athletics.
The emblazoned sun on a yellow field stands for House Aquinas, named for St. Thomas Aquinas, patron saint of students and Catholic Schools. The sun is often associated with Aquinas, and here represents the illumination of knowledge, which comes from above, and the glory of life in God.
The quill pen on a purple field stands for House Hildegard, named for St. Hildegard of Bingen. Though St. Hildegard does not have any official patronage, her incredible life and mastery of varied fields show her to be a source of inspiration for all students. The quill pen here references St. Hildegard's prolific writing and stands for the application of education for both teachers and students.
The lightning bolt on a white field stands for House Scholastica, named for St. Scholastica of Nursia. Another patron of schools, together, St. Scholastica and St. Hildegard pay tribute to the rich tradition of Benedictine nuns who have taught at Resurrection. The lightning bolt here represents the power of prayer and references the last encounter between St. Scholastica and her brother, St. Benedict.
The book on a green field stands for House Isidore, named for St. Isidore of Seville. St. Isidore is the patron saint of the Internet and technology users, a great patron in our digital age. The book references St. Isidore's writing and compiling of the first encyclopedia, and represents the commitment to education from Scripture and textbooks.
