The Shepherd's Guild

Guild and Contact Information


The Shield (logo) of The Shepherd's Guild:

The following is the explanation of the Shield:

The cross of St, George, patron saint of the poor, of the shepherds and of the warriors. St. George is a very popular saint, the patron for many people and lands such as Greece, England, Russia, Palestine, Palestinian Christians, Malta, Georgia, Constantinople, Boy Scouts, Canada, Portugal, Germany, Venice, Order of the Garter and others. Also, St. George is the patron of the founding member's home parish and patron of many Orthodox parishes.

The Orthodox (Three-barred) cross is superimposed onto the cross of Saint George.

The colors of blue and white were chosen because these are the colors of the flags of Greece and South Carolina. The green represents the pastures, The Shepherd's fields.

A shield is symbolic of chivalry, aspiring soldiers of Christ.
