Learn About Our Logo

The Dop STARS stands for Dominicans Order of Preachers who are Spiritual, Truthful, Active, Responsible and Studious.

The Child Dominic bears our ESLrs “STARS”, which symbolize giving light to everyone in the same manner that we are taught by the Biblical verse, “let your shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” (Matthew 5:14-16)

The Dominican shield with its cross is the Order’s logo for 800 years placed in the center of letter O. The Dominican Cross comes from the Torch of Truth or Light of Truth, a symbol of the Dominican Order, often shown being carried in the mouth of a little.
