The Altar of the Blessed Virgin, May, 2014

 

The traditional May Crowning of the Blessed Virgin Mary will take place on Sunday, May 3, at the 10:00 a.m. Mass.

A crown of roses is placed atop the statue of Saint Mary in the centerpiece of Holy Family’s side altar. The altar depicts the Coronation of Mary, Queen of Heaven and Earth. She is crowned by the Holy Trinity: God the Father on the right, Jesus Christ on the left, and the Holy Spirit in the form of a dove overhead.

Parish children process to the sanctuary with roses to be placed in front of the altar.
