Blessed Virgin Mary Honored at May Crowning
At Morning Assembly on Monday, May 2, students honored the Blessed Virgin Mary by celebrating the annual May Crowning ceremony. Junior Denny McGinnis led the student body in a reflection on the Marian meaning of the Alma Mater and invited members of the Sodality of Our Lady to come forward to lead the school in singing.
The Alma Mater not only shows respect for Jesuit High School, which helps form students throughout their teenage years, but also pays special tribute to Mary, the “star” of students’ “youthful years,” whose banners lead the way to victory in “heaven’s spheres.”
Pre-freshman Christopher Charles crowned the statue of Mary in the Traditions Courtyard with assistance from junior Cameron Maheu.
