Welcome to the JPC Dictionary of Religious Signs.
Here you will find signs commonly used in religious services.
Although JPC is a Catholic organisation, our dictionary includes signs from other Christian churches and communities.
With each video of a sign you will see an explanation box. Here, we unpack the meaning of the idea which the sign communicates. There is also a distribution box, explaining which parts of Australia and which churches/communities use that particular sign.
The dictionary is not a place for religious arguments. We will include any sign that is genuinely used by Christian churches and communities in Australia. We also welcome any feedback (there is a box provided) and information about the distribution of any sign.
