Our logo includes an icon image of the Holy Family enveloped by the protective flames of the Holy Spirit to represent the identities of both churches. The flames also form a heart, representative of the Sacred Heart of Jesus which is one of the oldest devotions of the Catholic Church and spirituality of the Pro Ecclesia Sancta order which serves our parishes. The color scheme includes earthy, muted tones such as rust red, gold, brown and blue, which represent the rural area of Mitchell, SD and the values of hard work and integrity ingrained in our agricultural foundation.
