About the logo, its design, and meaning...
Province II is thrilled to launch its new logo. With the in-process addition of the Diocese of Cuba to the Province, we need a logo that represents all of our Dioceses. The long overdue new logo is finally here! So, who designed it and what is the meaning?
The logo reflects the people, mission, and work of Province II. The hands represent the people of the Province doing God’s good work throughout the Province and the World. This is represented by the “hands of peace” upholding the Episcopal Church shield which spans the Atlantic — the International Atlantic Province. We invite you to join us as we continue to live out the meaning of this logo as a community of faith, joined by our love for God, our community and each other. Let us grow closer as a beloved community by carrying out the mission and work of this Province!
The new Provincial logo was designed by Grace-Ann Porpeglia of the Diocese of Albany, a Junior at Christa McAuliffe Academy School of Arts and Sciences of Lake Oswego, Oregon. An avid figure skater, she is interested in studying Criminology/Criminal Justice, Pre-Med, and Political Science in college. She is the daughter of Dorothy-Jane Connolly, Chair of the Synod Planning Committee and former Provincial Chancellor, and granddaughter of the late John Wood Goldsack, former Chancellor of both the Province and the Diocese of NJ. Meaghan Keegan, Communications Officer and Webmaster of the Diocese of Albany, graciously volunteered her time to digitize the design for the Province. Thank you Grace-Ann and Meaghan for all your hard work and patience throughout this process.
