The open book and the sword are the heraldic symbols for St. Paul. The shamrock represents Bishop Benjamin Cronyn, the Irish-born first Bishop of Huron. The star represents Bishop Isaac Hellmuth, who came from a Polish Jewish family, was the diocese’s second bishop and first cathedral dean, and who also founded the University of Western Ontario.

The motto means "The sword of the spirit" (Ep 6:17).
