Statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary in St. Joseph Heights Chapel

We give special attention to honoring the Blessed Virgin Mary during the month of May. Today, we celebrated the annual May Crowning of the statue of Mary in the St. Joseph Heights Chapel, commencing our month of devotion.

"As Sisters of Notre Dame 
we honor Mary with special love. 
She who was totally dedicated to God, 
open for his word and ready to fulfill his will, 
is a model for our life of prayer and service. 
Particularly on feasts of Mary, 
which we joyfully celebrate with the Church, 
we praise God for the graces 
given to the Mother of his Son. 
We daily renew our devotion to Mary, 
contemplating the mysteries 
of Christ's redeeming mission, 
especially by praying the rosary."
~SND Constitutions, 48
