May Crowning

It is a Catholic tradition to honor Mary, our Mother, during the month of May by placing on her statue a crown of flowers. This lovely ceremony is a favorite tradition at Blessed Sacrament. The May Crowning gives the children an opportunity to especially honor the Blessed Mother of Jesus, and to give thanks to her.
The children dressed their best for this special day, and line up for a procession to the statue of Mary. Each first and second grader carries a flower to place in front of Mary; and two child is chosen to place the crown of flowers on Mary’s head.
