St. Joseph's Priory, Queens Park, Australia


This is the Canonry Crest of St. Joseph's Priory.  Note the Fleur de Lis at upper left showing the connection with the Order of Prémontré; the stellar constellation called the Southern Cross at upper right showing the connection with Australia; the yellow band with shamrocks, tracing their connection with their Irish mother Abbey of Killnacrott; and the swan, showing their specific location in the Swan River area of Western Australia (near Perth).  The motto reads "In the midst of the Church."
