A decades-old tradition continues at St. Peter’s School on Monday with May Crowning.

The Month of May is dedicated to Mary, the mother of Jesus. To honor Mary as the Queen of Heaven, a member of the senior class is voted to crown the statue of Mary.

This year’s May Queen is Grace Dix.

May Crowning at St. Peter is the first time that members of the senior class can wear their graduation gowns. It is also a time to ask Mary to pray for them as they begin their final days as high school students.
