The Archdiocese of Philadelphia announces that Mr. Dan Cellucci, of Saint Thomas of Villanova Parish, is the winner of the Bicentennial logo contest. Mr. Cellucci's winning design will be used to promote the year-long celebration of the 200th anniversary of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. The celebration will be observed from April 2007 through April 2008.

The logo is an artistic interpretation of the bicentennial theme which is Serving the People of God in the Beginning, Now and Always. The logo will be used on banners, posters and other printed material throughout the Bicentennial.

More than 200 artists submitted entries as part of the contest. Mr. Cellucci's winning entry was selected by members of the Bicentennial Executive Committee in consultation with a local artist.

In submitting his entry Mr. Cellucci told the committee that, "At the center of the logo is the Eucharist, which represents the center of who we are as Church and the focus for our 200-year history. The people united around the Eucharist represent the People of God. The people are different colors to represent the rich diversity of our Catholic community as well as our community throughout time, 'in the beginning, now and always.'"
