May Crowning


Mary is honored by the third grade children of St. Thomas Becket Church, in Cheshire, following their First Communion Ceremony the day before.

The month of May is traditionally dedicated to Mary in many cultures.

May is considered the season of the beginning of new life. The statue of Mary was crowned with a wreath of blossoms to indicate Mary’s virtues that are to be imitated by the faithful. The children also left a dozen roses in her honor near her statue. The two children selected to crown

Mary are Kaela Ljungquist and Andrew Borajkeiwicz. Father John Gwozdz, pastor of St. Thomas Becket Church presided over the ceremony on Sunday,
