Logo serving the Province
The logo serving the ALCP/OSS (Africa Province) is the Easter Pentecost Spirituality portrayed by the emblem of the sending cross designed by the founder himself portrayed with the descending hand of God pointing on immolated lamb carrying the victorious flag of the Risen Christ. Beside the image of the lamb are the two letters Alfa and Omega, embodying the eternity and the proclamation of the word of God to all people so that God may be all in all (1cor 15:28). Under the image of the lamb is the image of the descending of the Holy Spirit from which the ALCP/OSS draws its life and Origin.
