May Day Crowning.I remember the May procession my grade school classmates and I would walk around the church singing and singing and then one destinated student got to crown the Virgin Mary statue with a crown of beautiful flowers.
January 1 is the Solemnity of Mary, the Mother of God. The beautiful picture above, called “ Blue Madonna” was painted by Irena Jakus. Irena’s apostolate is called Holy Art - Jeweled Masterpieces for God's Glory. For more information on Irena's work, contact us.
