Today, in honor of month of Mary, our homeschooling co-op had a processional across the church grounds to crown each of the five statues of our Holy Mother. Each child also had one flower to give to Mary, and we sang songs like Immaculate Mary and Sing of Mary as we adorned the statues with the crowns of flowers. At each statue, we prayed a decade of the Rosary after different children shared the following Marian stories:
We ended our Marian procession with the Litany of Saints. It was such a lovely way to honor our Blessed Mother. I thought I’d share some photos from the event.
