May Crowning – Thursday, 12 May at 1.15 pm

Crowning-1265

May Crowning Devotion: Thursday, 12 May at 1.15 pm

Our school children will show their devotion to Mary the Mother of God by crowning her image. The practice of depicting the image of the Blessed Virgin Mary with a crown first developed among Christians after the Council of Ephesus in 431 AD. During the 16th century the practice become widespread. By the middle of the last century almost every parish in the United States had May Crowning Devotions. While the devotions on 12 May will be led by the school children all parishioners are invited and encouraged to attend and take part.

What are you doing this Year of Mercy?

It’s not too late to get involved. How about becoming involved with St. Mary Prison Ministry? The opportunity is open to adult men and women. “People in prison are still people, made in the image and likeness of God. No matter what someone has done, they deserve the opportunity to hear the Word of God.” (USCCB). Four visit dates are left for 2016. Contact J. Kevin Schmelzer for more volunteer information at j_schmelzer@sbcglobal.net or 740.653.3046. Or join us for coffee and donuts on May 15 after the 8.45 Mass in the Spirit Center.
