WINCHESTER, Va. - Sacred Heart Academy in Winchester held its annual May Crowning ceremony on Friday.
The students started the day learning about the Blessed Mary and her significance with a mass.
Students marched outside with flowers and placed them in baskets front of the statue before placing a crown on Mary's head.
Sacred Heart Principal Susan Parks spoke the importance of Mary.
“We believe that our Mother always points us to Christ,” Parks said. “In times of need and times of gratitude. During Mother Day’s month, we celebrate our Mother.”
The month of May in the Catholic Church is traditionally a time to honor Mary.
