-May 6 May Crowning of Mary ceremony. The processional of the students, before Mass started, when each brought a flower to be placed in vases near the statue of Mary, Mother of Jesus, on the altar. Historians aren’t exactly sure why May was chosen to honor Mary, but many believe that May, being the month when spring is in full bloom, has a lot to do with it. May is the height of spring. Gardens everywhere are alive with blooming flowers and trees are filling their branches with leaves. This new beginning and new birth in nature reminds us of the life Mary gave to Jesus.
-Delaney Koch, 5th grader at St Edward school, bringing up the crown of flowers. The crowning took place at the end of Mass. She was chosen because of the essay and poem she wrote about Mary and how much she means to her. During the May Crowning, the children prayed for all mothers, and especially for their own mothers, grandmothers, and all the women in their lives who love and care for them.
