Crowning of Mary

On the last Friday in May, we came together as a whole school to honour Mary, our heavenly Mother. We started our Crowning ceremony with a reading of The Visitation followed by praying a decade of the Rosary altogether outside in the playground. We formed a 'human rosary' in the centre of the playground, consisting of the Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory Be prayers. The rest of the school sat around the outside of the Rosary. Each child brought in one flower and processed into the hall to place their flower at Our Lady's feet. We finished our prayerful celebration with a well-known hymn to Mary called 'Bring flowers of the rarest'. Thank you to everyone for making this a truly prayerful occasion.
