May Crowning of Mary
During the month of May, our students crown the statue of Mary in front of our school. We will sing a verse of Immaculate Mary and pray a decade of the Rosary. Two 8th grade students will lead the Rosary prayers. Gabriella Rossi crowned Mary today, May 2nd. Matthew Burns will crown Mary on May 17th, and Mary Beth Hoffmann will crown Mary on May 31st.
Our GSC school students and families honored Mary in our annual May Procession on Wednesday, May 18, 2016. The 8th grade students participated in the prayer service in a special way. Mary S. crowned Mary while Ryan carried a basket of flowers to place at the feet of the Mary statue. The 8th grade students led everyone in the church as we prayed a Litany to Mary. Thank you Mrs. MacClain for sharing your pictures with us.
