2010 Annual May Crowning

Sunday, May 9, 2010

          St Michaelís World Apostolate held the Annual May Crowning at Our Lady of the Roses, Mary Help of Mothers Shrine during the Sunday Holy Hour for priests. Even though it was a windy, chilly morning, over 200 pilgrims enjoyed the memorable and uplifting occasion.

          Following, 100 plus pilgrims gathered for this festive occasion at Our Lady's Workshop and enjoyed the fine home-cooked luncheon, the camaraderie of companionable spirits and a brief but stirring meeting led by President Michael Mangan.
