The Arms of Reverend Nilda Lucca de Anaya

The Ecclesiastical Arms of Reverend Nilda Lucca de Anaya, United States of America, Ordained in 1983 by Bishop Francisco Reus Froylan, 5th Episcopal Bishop of Puerto Rico, US. The Episcopal Church (TEC) is a member church of the worldwide Anglican Communion.

These arms commemorate the fact that the Reverend Nilda Lucca de Anaya is the first woman in Latin America, and one of the first in the US, to be ordained an Episcopal Priest (Anglican). A trailblazer, her contributions to the Episcopal Church have been many, from leading humanitarian missions in Cuba, being President of the ECW (Episcopal Church Women), helping the Lambeth Movement allowing women to be ordained in the Anglican Church in England, to serving at the prestigious National Cathedral in Washington, DC, with many articles written about her. The holder of a Master’s degree in Public Health (MPH), the armiger is a graduate of the prestigious Episcopal General Theological Seminary in New York City, founded in 1817.

The traditional design, in lieu of crest on top of a helmet, is a black galero hat with a cord with a single tassel at each end denoting a Priest. The cord in Gules and Sable, represents the colours of Ponce, Puerto Rico where she was ordained.

The symbol of the Holy Spirit is shown as an intertwined triangular knot on the cord. The shield in Azure with a Chevron in Or.

The triquetra in Argent below the chevron, signifies the Holy Trinity, and represents the Holy Trinity Church in Ponce where the armiger was rector. The Church was organized by British residents in Ponce, Puerto Rico, as an Anglican congregation in 1869. They built their first church of wood and metal at this site in 1873, aided by materials sent by Queen Victoria's Government, including a bell, cast in England in 1870.
The Rampart Lion in Argent represents the city of Ponce, founded and named after Juan Ponce de Leon in 1692 by his grandson. The Cross of Jerusalem, also in Argent, represents the Episcopal Church.

The moto in Latin means "being first"; the armiger being the first ordained woman priest in the Episcopal Church in Latin America, and one of the first in the United States.
