May Crowning 2012

Yesterday evening we had our May crowning--it seemed an especially appropriate occasion, being Mother's Day!

Processing (a good Dominican tradition!).

Sr. Bernadette Marie carried the crown of flowers...

...and Sr. Irma had the honor of crowning Our Lady!

Every evening during the month of May, we honor Our Lady by making a procession to her statue while singing the Litany of Loreto. This is part of our May novena to Mary, in which we remember in prayer all the petitions and requests that have been made by our friends, relatives and benefactors. Please know that we are remembering you who read this blog as well in our May devotions! May Our Lady intercede with the Lord for all your intentions, and grant those pleasing to His will!

  1. Thank you for making your presence available through this blog and your website, which is how I found you in the first place! I thought you might be interested in this video, made by a cloistered Benedictine nun in England, about the monastery and the internet: http://www.ibenedictines.org/2012/05/08/the-monastery-and-the-internet/
