Honoring Our Lady by crowing statues of her in our churches, schools, gathering spaces and outside areas, with a crown of flowers, has been a tradition in the Church for decades. The exact origin of this devotion can not be pinpointed, but honoring Mary in the month of May holds dear to our friars and our province ministries. Throughout the month, we have been sharing posts from our parishes and parish schools, as they celebrated May Crownings, onto our Province FaceBook page. Be sure to check it out to see more photos from around the province. These photos are from the Blessed Sacrament Catholic Community, in Burlington, NC.
