May Crowning

One of the highest honors for an 8th grade student is to be chosen to participate in the crowning of Mary at the school’s annual Marian Mass.  This Mass is held in May, the month traditionally dedicated to the devotion of our Blessed Mother.  She is crowned to symbolize the dignity and beauty God bestowed on her as our heavenly queen and spiritual mother.

Only 8th graders who have exemplary Christian behavior are considered for this honor.
