Middle School May Crowning

Middle School May Crowning 1The Middle School honored the Blessed Mother Mary with a May Crowning Ceremony held on May 17. Eighth graders Chris Bodet, Tyler Jankay, and Evan LeBarge all placed flowers at feet of the Blessed Mother statue in front of the Middle School while Jessica Mount placed a crown of flowers on her head. The students sang “Immaculate Mary”, prayed a decade of the Rosary with the Hail, Holy Queen, and then sang “Hail, Holy Queen.”

The “Our Lady of Grace” statue was given to the school by sisters Mary Azar and Frances Miaoulis and was blessed by Bishop Toolen on April 12, 1945. The statue stood in front of our original school site, The Gerald Mansion, from 1945 until 1965. It was rededicated by Archbishop Lipscomb on September 12, 2004 at the formal dedication of our Middle School.
