By tradition in the Catholic Church, each month is dedicated to a certain devotion. In May, it is the Blessed Virgin Mary, mother of Jesus. May Crowning and other special May events, such as public recitation of the rosary, take place during this time.
On Monday, May 2, seniors wore their gowns for the first time to take part in the May Crowning ceremony presided by Father Jeremy Miller in St. Peter’s Parish Church. Ten members of the senior class were elected by their classmates for May Court. This year’s ceremony marks the 84th anniversary of the May Crowning at St. Peter’s.
Students from the second grade who made their First Communion this past Sunday also participated in the ceremony.
