O, Queen of Heaven, rejoice! Alleluia.
For He whom thou didst merit to bear, Alleluia,
Hath arisen as He said, Alleluia.
Pray for us to God, Alleluia.
Rejoice and be glad, O Virgin Mary. Alleluia.
For the Lord hath risen indeed. Alleluia.
O God, who, through the Resurrection of Thy Son our Lord Jesus Christ,
Didst vouchsafe to fill the world with joy; grant, we beseech Thee, that, through His Virgin Mother, Mary, We may lay hold on the joys of everlasting life. Through the same Christ our Lord.
It was a glorious day as MARCH hosted the annual May Crowning at the new Grace Academy. Now with Grace Academy officially ours (we signed the papers on May 13, 2016) we honored Mary as our Mother and Queen of Heaven and Earth. All the families gathered to honor our Blessed Mother with prayers and song. After the crowning everyone enjoyed the day by playing, visiting, and planting. Thank you MARCH for all the lovely gardening you did!
