May Crowning Variation

Mary pray for us.  St Joseph protect us.

It is a Catholic tradition to honor Mary, our Mother, during the month of May by placing on her statue a crown of flowers.  Normally done as a devotional ceremony, it honors the Blessed Mother of Jesus and give thanks to her for bringing our Savior into the world.

Beginning this Sunday, May 3rd, at 12:30 pm and continuing throughout the week to May 9th, parishioners are invited to leave real or artificial flowers in front of the Holy Family statue by St Joseph church asking both Mary and Joseph to pray for us. Take a moment to pray a decade of the rosary, sing a hymn, or silently petition these two powerful saints for personal intentions and for the peace and protection of those struggling in this pandemic.

Please observe safety precautions by social distancing and gatherings of no more than 10.

Rejoice always. Pray constantly. Give thanks in all circumstances. 
(1 Thessalonians 5: 16-18)
