‘The first and best disciple of Jesus’

Children donned their first Communion attire once again at Mary Queen of Peace Parish on May 8 for the annual May crowning.

Having received the Eucharist for the first time the weekend prior, the students carried flowers into the sanctuary to be collected in vases and placed around a statue of Mary, which was crowned during the school Mass.

“The significance (of the May crowning) honors Mary as the first and best disciple of Jesus and someone that we should try to emulate in our everyday life,” said Father Craig Holway, pastor of Mary Queen of Peace.
