On Friday, May 8, we celebrated our annual May Crowning. This beautiful ceremony, which pays tribute to Mother Mary, is also a wonderful tradition for our 8th-grade students. Four 8th grade students were chosen by their fellow classmates for exemplifying qualities of the Blessed Mother. These students usually receive the honor of placing a crown of flowers upon the Mother's head during our yearly Mass. Instead, this year our school community was able to connect virtually to view the pre-recorded virtual ceremony. To prepare our 1st grade students for this special ceremony, one of our 1st grade teachers, Mrs. Hutchinson, invited her students to make their own Marian Shrine by watching a video of a traditional May Crowning and then a video of herself making one! For this month dedicated to the Blessed Mother, we invite you to join us by watching our virtual May Crowning Mass and making a Marian Shrine to go inside, outside, or as part of a Mary garden.
