Month of Mary - The rosary will be prayed before the 8:00am Mass during the month of May.
MARY MEDITATION: “May is the month of Mary. We began this month with a May Crowning and rosary before morning masses. This should be a special month for us. Mary is our heavenly mother, given to us by Jesus himself from the cross. She is the one who stood by her son through his entire passion. She is the Queen of Heaven. We should try and make this a special month for Our Lady. Let’s try and give her a little extra devotion this month. Are we praying the rosary at home? Do we at least say a couple of Hail Marys each day? How about making the effort to get here 20 minutes before Mass to join with those praying the rosary. Do we have a May altar at home? The month is already half gone, let’s be sure to honor our heavenly mother this month.
