I had the privilege this morning of taking part in the 108-year tradition of May Crowning at Notre Dame Academy. “Notre Dame Day” is decidedly one of the most significant days of the academic year at the Academy. As a ’75 alum, it certainly brings back memories of our annual celebration, especially in my senior year.
It’s so good to know that Mary continues to be a strong influence in the lives of these young women. As we prayed the rosary together, I joined the students, faculty, senior parents and alums in asking that Mary be a guiding light for each of them as they follow in her way of bringing Jesus to the world.
What memories do you have of May Crowning, either at NDA or in your parish/school? What is Mary’s role in your life?
