Here is the symbolism of the logo entitled the burning bush:
- The stylized tree represents the Tree of Life.
- The tree also makes a link with the Outaouais region, where the lumber industry played a very important part in its history.
- The cross is the symbol of the Christian faith, and is a unifying symbol.
- The flames of the burning bush symbolize the parishioners, the parishes and the pastoral units. Together, the flames form a strong and united Church: the diocesan Church of Gatineau.
- The flames also represent a movement towards the outside, towards the Outaouais community. The Church of Gatineau is there to proclaim the Gospel, and help us strengthen our faith in Jesus.
- The 7 red flames, (black in the black-and-white version), represent the 7 days of the week, and the 12 orange flames, (gray in the black-and-white version), represent the 12 months of the year.
The numbers 7 and 12, in the Bible, respectively represent the spiritual plenitude (Lev. 4: 6; Heb. 2: 4), the 12 tribes of Israel, and the 12 Apostles.
