Donor Wall Symbolism

Our newly installed latest and largest donor wall to date. This 60 foot long ceramic tile mural forms the grand entry to the new Performing Arts Center at Our Lady of Good Counsel High School in Olney, MD.  The school successfully raised $10 million and credits our work as a major factor in meeting their goals.

“In Harmony, Small Things Grow,” is the motto of the Xaverian Brothers. The motto and the Brothers’ five spiritual values speak to the transformational growth at the heart of the Good Counsel student experience.

 

Simplicity is represented by the Virgin Mary cradling, Jesus. The depiction is modeled on a statue located at the front entrance of the school and for whom the school is named.

Humility is depicted by a group of Xaverian Brothers wearing the traditional habit. The Brothers opened the school in 1958.

Trust is symbolized by the path that leads graduates to a future full of promise. The falcon, a symbol of strength, freedom and majesty, soars overhead. The falcon is also the school’s mascot.

More to come………………………
