Roses for Mary
May is Mary's Month!  On this first weekend in May we honor Mary in a special way.  At the 5:30pm Mass on Saturday, children from the Polish community carry roses to honor Mary.

Honoring Our Lady
One by one the children place their flowers before an image of Our Lady of Czestochowa, beloved icon of the Polish people.  The Polish choir, Vivat Musica, under the direction of Anna Sawicki, sang at the Mass.

May Crowning
On Sunday, following the Noon Mass, Father Ryan and the children of the Cathedral parish led a rosary procession through the Cathedral.  The procession concluded around the beautiful image of Mary in the Archbishop Murphy Courtyard.

May Crowning
The image of Mary was crowned with flowers.  "Hail, Holy Queen, mother of mercy, our life, our sweetness, and our hope!"

Shrine of the Blessed Virgin Mary
Just in time for Mary's month, the Shrine of the Blessed Virgin Mary was thoroughly cleaned and repainted.  While the beloved image of Mary with the Child Jesus is being restored, the historic image of Our Lady of Seattle finds a home in the shrine.
