Dominic is shown holding the Gospel of St Matthew and a white lily, indicating the resurrection within its trinitarian structures. He is also shown with the flame, this indicates both the Holy Spirit and the flame in his mother’s vision, when she dreamed of the hound of God with a lit torch in its mouth setting light to the world. The star on his forehead is linked to his baptism event. Like the saints in the other icons, the simple black and white garments are touched with a celestial blue.
The Catholic Chaplaincy serves the students and staff of the University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh Napier University and Queen Margaret University.
The Catholic Chaplaincy is also a parish of the Archdiocese of St Andrews and Edinburgh (the Parish of St Albert the Great) and all Catholic students and staff are automatically members of this parish.
