The Ethel Kennedy Division from Macomb County in Michigan held a May Crowning Ceremony at their May meeting.  One of their members placed the wreath of flowers on the head of our Blessed Virgin Mary statue.  They said prayers and sang hymns for the ceremony and brought in pictures of their mothers. Everyone had a chance to share a story about her Mom.  It was very enjoyable and interesting to hear these wonderful stories.  Two members were fortunate to have their Mothers at the Ceremony.
