Be proud of your faith. Uprise.

Heart

This represents love and caring, the Sacred Heart, and Jesus’ eternal love of all humanity. It also reflects the passion young adults feel when they embrace their faith, and the love in their hearts which deepens with service and care and interconnectedness with others. In addition, it symbolizes the interlocking hands of unity.

Flame

A symbol of inspiration, a burning passion, and everlasting devotion. It’s also a reminder to let the Fire of the Holy Spirit fill and purify your heart, for a deeper care, concern, and boldness of faith-in-action. Entrusted to each of us at our baptism to be kept burning brightly, this also represents being on fire for our faith, and walking always as children of the light.

Cross

Our cross is the cross of Christ’s suffering and redemption, in love and for love of us. It is also our commitment to remain strong and steadfast in our faith no matter what life brings. It indicates that we strive to surrender our wants for the benefit of others and humbly give of ourselves especially when challenges come our way.

Uprise – The Name

The name is meant to inspire a change — a change of heart for the common good, Uprise of generosity toward others through mercy, and against society’s diminishing value of faith. It urges young adults to act with loving intentions and to be proud of their faith, to share it with others and inspire them to do the same.

Now you know the meaning of the brand. It’s time to Uprise, join the movement and put generosity into action.
