Fifth Sunday of Easter
May Crowning Sunday at 10am
The children of Christ the King will lay flowers at Mary's feet during the May Crowning at Sunday's 10am Mass.

Throughout history, Catholics have long honored the Blessed Virgin Mary during the month of May. To symbolize her significance in the Church and in our lives, the “May Crowning" typically involves a procession and a statue of the Blessed Virgin crowned or adorned with flowers, thus honoring Our Lady as both Queen and Mother to all the faithful.

The queen symbol was attributed to Mary because she was a perfect follower of Christ, who is the absolute “crown” of creation. She is the Mother of the Son of God.
