Holycross College Nagercoil

The main thrust of the college is “Empowerment of Women”

Our College Crest

The Radiant Cross symbolises Charity and Devotedness and recalls to us very vividly, the Love of Our Lord Jesus Christ. The Cross is a perpetual reminder of Calvary. It is endowed with rays to signify our continued participation in the death and resurrection of Christ in the events of our everyday life. The Cross planted on a mountain invites us to ascend the ladder towards higher consciousness. The letter M has to be understood as the initial for the name of Mary, Mother of God, Our Blessed Mother and our Protectress. To signify more forcefully the Blessed Virgin, the letter M is topped with a star, which reminds us of the guidance, Our Lady gives in our lives. The Anchor symbolises our hope in the Radiant Cross and in the Virgin Mary. Our College Motto is “In the Cross and Mary is our hope”. This Crest is not only a souvenir of the past but a real and most significant programme of life, an ideal to realise.
