May Crowning

Back on May 4th, our homeschool group had a May Crowning after the First Friday Mass.  The First Communicants of 2012 wore their First Communion clothing, and the choir sang a few Marian hymns.  Catherine's name was drawn to crown Mary, so she was very excited.  Dan was able to meet us there on his lunch break, which was nice.

Catherine was ready to bring up her flowers. 

Time to honor Mary, the Mother of God.

Father helped Catherine with her flowers, as the Mary statue was up high.

O Mary, we crown thee with blossoms today...

Then all the kids got to bring up flowers to put in the vases.  Here are Dominic and Anne.

We had a lovely May Crowning ceremony, followed by a potluck lunch, where we got to spend time with many friends.  It was a great day!
