The Crowning of Mary

May is the month of Mary.

Each year, during the month of May, we crown a statue of Mary. The children who have made their First Holy Communion (usually Year 3 children) lead us all on a procession around our school before we place flowers at the feet of the statue. We sing songs about Mary and Fr Adrian leads us in a litany to Mary. It is a beautiful occasion.


In 2021, because of the rain, we had to do the crowning inside, and because it was Year 4 who had been preparing for their First Holy Communions, it was them who led the procession. Pictures from the day are below.
