Honoring our Blessed Mother
On Sunday May 11, following the 10:30 AM Mass, our parish held it's annual crowning of the Blessed Mother with procession outside the church.
The parish's statue of Mary is honored with a wreath of blossoms to indicate Mary's virtues, virtues that are to be imitated by the faithful. In his 1965 encyclical, Mense Maio, Pope Paul VI identified the month of May as an opportune time to incorporate special prayers for peace into traditional May devotions.
