2011 Annual
May Crowning

Sunday, May 15, 2011

          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. Over 200 pilgrims enjoyed the memorable and uplifting occasion despite the rain. However, it certainly didn't dampen the spirit, as all agreed that they got soaked with graces.

          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.
