2013 Asian Mass logo designed by Teenager from Vietnamese Community.
Here is the explanation from the designer.
The Year of Faith celebrated in 2012 to 2013 has become a very
meaningful time for me. Catholics are called to follow Jesus’ path
and strengthen their faith during this year. Obviously, this year’s
Asian Mass and dinner celebrated in the Year of Faith has inspired
me to create a design for this our theme, Come Together in Faith. As
the main logo of the Year of Faith is a ship, I transform the phrase
“Come Together in Faith” into the shape of a ship as well. That ship
is heading toward all of us; it welcomes us to participate in the
journey with God. The cross is placed at the center and extends to
the edge in order to get our attention and emphasize the power of
God. The fish symbol is a decoration on the ship to illustrate Jesus
guiding and accompanying our trip to the kingdom of God.
The Asian celebration occurs during Ordinary Time according to the
Catholic calendar. In keeping with this liturgical season, the
design is done in green, the main color of this period, and red, the
theme color of the Year of Faith. Finally, the yellow background
shows the joyful spirit so characteristic of the Mass itself. I also
used yellow as a substitute for gold to signify the presence of God
among our Catholic community. As we can “come together in faith”, we
travel together with God on this ship!
