May Faith First Was A Celebration All About Mary

Children and adults of the parish celebrated together in this multi-generational event.

At the May Faith First, children & their parents created Mary Garden Dioramas, each depicting unique & creative scenes to honor Mary. All parishioners then gathered in the narthex to hear reflections of images and titles for Mary including Blessed Mother, the Visitation of our Lady, Madonna, Immaculate Heart of Mary, Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, Queen of Peace, and Mary, Queen of Heaven & Earth.  The choir lead all those gathered in Marian Songs. Fr. Robert blessed statues of Mary brought by parishioners, as well as the dioramas that were just created. The event concluded with all the children gathered bringing flowers to Mary. Approximately 20 children processed to Mary as the sound of Immaculate Mary echoed through the entire church. Declan Powell & Quynh Nguyen brought forward a beautiful crown of fragrant flowers to honor Mary.   

Prior to this event, all of the children in Faith Development classes created paper flowers with their personal intentions written on them. These flowers were brought before Mary for her intercession & can been seen hanging by the Blessed Mother statue during the month of May.
