EmblemThe symbol, or emblem of Kwun Tong Maryknoll College was designed by our first Supervisor, Rev. John Cioppa, M.M. using the symbol of the Maryknoll Father Society- the "Chi-Rho". These are two Greek letters: Chi written as "X" and Rho written as "P". These two letters are the first letters of the Greek work for Christ. The round figure, or oval, represents the globe or world for whom Christ came as Saviour.
Thus the school's symbol shows its unity with the work of the Maryknoll Fathers in many countries throughout the world, the work of bringing Christ's love to all people and races.
The Maryknoll Fathers hope that each student will honour the school emblem by leading a good, upright life and by being an instrument of God's love in a world that needs truth and love.
