Symbolism

Badge

The two wings of the Canada goose appear in a circular form to represent the concept of everything being connected through communication. The goose is known for its strength, cooperation, and sound. Moreover, with the shield representing the Major’s denomination and its participants, the wings also illustrate the idea of pastoral counselling and support for those spirits that are frozen temporarily in situations that hinder them from hearing God’s call to better things.
