Traditionally, children who are First Communicants for the year are chosen to crown Our Lady. This year, we had 2 children in our group. One is my dear friend Mary's daughter, and the other was my own dear YDS. My friend's daughter is very tiny for her age, so she carried the crown during the procession, and my YDS actually climbed the ladder to place the crown on the head of our Blessed Mother. All the little ones processed in the church and placed flowers in a vase at Our Lady's feet.
Father Henry Dorsch, who will celebrate his 40th year as a priest later this month, is so very kind in allowing us use of his parish's church and hall each month. He has a true devotion to Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament, and each month he takes the time to teach the children how to behave at adoration, and how to pray. We are truly blessed by this wonderful man who shepherds with love and kindness. Father enjoyed the May crowning and took photos of the event.
