Camillian Sisters Coat of Arms

The Anchor – The symbol that originates from the Coat of Arms of the Barbantini family.

The M Sign – A traditional symbol for the Blessed Virgin Mary. Blessed maria Domenica Brun Barbantini had a strong devotion to Our Lady of Sorrows. We imitate her in serving the suffering and caring for the dying with the solicitude and tenderness of a mother to her only son.

The three symbolic stars that anchor for the Christian faith – Faith, hope, and love.

The tree held by a hand – We recognize that the Congregation comes from God and is held by Him.

The red cross – A symbol of our charism of service to the sick. (It originates from the coat of arms of the Camillian Fathers.)

The Congregation came into being through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit; it comes from God and is held by Him. It is entrusted to the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary whom we venerate under the title of Our Lady of Sorrows and to St. Camillus de Lellis, the Patron Saint of the Sick who was the first to use the Red Cross as a symbol of love and service to the sick. The Congregation lives the theological virtues of Faith, Hope and Love as it continues the mission entrusted to it by God.
