Year 3 children from St Chrysostom’s School visited Church today. They investigated symbols and language and enjoyed learning about the church as a place of spirituality and prayer.
It was also the beginning of May and the children joined in the informal ceremony of the Crowning of Our Lady’s statue. We all lit candles, sang ‘Ave, ave, ave Maria’ as the veil and crown were placed upon the statue.
This simple ceremony, clearly loved by the children, has a lesson for us all about the Gospel: the greatest in the kingdom of heaven are those who are foremost in serving and in love.
She said YES! to God.
Now in the glory of heaven she prays for us, cares for us and is an inspiration and encouragement to us who also seek to love and serve.
