The May Crowning ceremony is a long standing tradition at Immaculate Conception School. It is a time of year to honor mothers and most especially Holy Mary. The ceremony at Immaculate Conception puts the recent first communion class as the hosts and hostesses of the ceremony as they carry flowers to be put at the foot of the Mary statue.

The fifth grade class has the honor of leading the Mass prior to the ceremony and two fifth grader girls are given the honor of crowning Mary. This year’s fifth graders chosen to crown the Mother of Jesus were Hannah Paeth and Lissa Gillman. After Mass, the school children lead a processional that makes its way to the statue of Mary where the crowning takes place.
