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.


Crowning of Mary 2022

In 2022, it was a really, really hot day when we crowned Mary. Canon Adrian joined us as we celebrated our school's patron saint by crowning a statue of her outside. The Year 3s who had received their first Holy Communion the weekend before led our procession. Pictures from the day are below.

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.
