The Saint Benedict Academy Catholic School community celebrated the traditional Crowning of Mary on May 13, 2014 the Feast of Our Lady of Fatima.
The prayer service was led by First and Fourth grade students in Mrs. Heather Silveria and Mrs. Kathy Johnston’s religion classes and followed a Mass of remembrance for baby Cecilia Harrison. Students carried a statue of Mary into Saint Raphael Church on a flower-laden bier. The students then re-enacted the Apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima before crowning the statue. The students body then followed in procession around the campus of Saint Raphael Church and Saint Benedict Academy carrying the crowned statue of Mary and reciting the Rosary.
