May – the Month of Mary
On Tuesday, May 1st all of the girls at Sacred Heart were invited to attend a crowning of Mary. The event was planned and hosted by Bev Applegate and it was a lovely chance for our girls to experience and adore Mary as the mother of Jesus and the Queen of Heaven. The girls were taught the history of this tradition and were invited to bring wreaths of flowers to our statue of Mary and lay them at her feet. We all sang an adoration together and finished the ceremony with prayer. The girls were given an invitation to attend the Crowning of Mary hosted by the Alter Rosary Society at the Church on May 7th.
As we enter into May, all of the students are shown the power of prayer to our mother Mary. We have been praying to Mary all year and asking her to intercede with all people and situations that are near and dear to us. It is so comforting to be able to start our day by sharing the things that are heavy on our hearts, with our friends at school. We rely on Mary to guide us, to love us and to open our mind to the faithfulness that can heal all things.
“When you see the storm coming, if you seek refuge which is Mary, there will be no danger of your wavering or going down.” –St. Josemaria Escriva
