Event - May Procession

18 May 2014

A beautiful day heralded the annual Parish May Procession. Pupils turned out laden with flowers to continue with this traditional Marian Devotion.

Holy Communicants led pupils and parishioners around the church grounds, singing devotional hymns to Mary and praying the Rosary, whilst considering the Joyful Mysteries. The Statue of Mary was crowned by one of the Year 3 pupils, with a lovely crown of flowers in the gardens before returning to the Abbey Church where final intercessions were shared by pupils.

Pupils laid the flowers that they had brought all around the statue of Our Lady, there was soon a carpet of flowers to honour our Holy Mother.
