May Crowning at OLS

The Blessed Virgin Mary was honored by parishioners of Our Lady of Sorrows Catholic Church (OLS) in their traditional May Procession and Crowning. During the observance on May 7 at the start of the 8:30 a.m. Mass, members of the Knights of Columbus Council 4304 served as honor guard and a procession of children, women, and men entered the church carrying fresh flowers and singing “Bring Flowers of the Rarest.” The blooms were positioned at a side altar devoted to Mary venerating her as the mother of Jesus Christ and the Church. The statue of Mary was crowned with a wreath of white roses. The Marian altar was incensed by the celebrant, Father Justin Ward.
