One of the striking features on our Diocesan Crest is the prominent depiction of the wheatsheaf. The image of wheat that is grown in many parts of our diocese is a representation of Eucharist. The wheat begins as a single grain before being planted, nurtured, grown to maturity and then processed to become the Body of Christ at Eucharist. Like the seed that is our vocation we too need to be nurtured and cared for in order to allow growth to take place along our journey of faith. Families and communities are encouraged through prayer and action to nurture the seed of vocation in the lives of those who may be considering the path to Priesthood or Religious Life. “Unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies it remains just a single grain, but if it dies, it bears much fruit.” John 12:24
