If you do nothing else this month.....

....ask your Parish Priest for a May Procession to Our Blessed Lady....before Holy Mass or afternoon Benediction.

It is a great way in which to express love and devotion to the Mother of Christ and a marvellous opportunity to proclaim the Faith, by example, as the procession wends its way around the streets surrounding the church.

Here is last year's May Procession from Sacramento....

Bring Flowers of the Rarest 

O Mary we crown thee with blossoms today!
Queen of the Angels and Queen of the May.
O Mary we crown thee with blossoms today,
Queen of the Angels and Queen of the May.

Bring flowers of the rarest
bring blossoms the fairest,
from garden and woodland and hillside and dale;
our full hearts are swelling,
our glad voices telling
the praise of the loveliest flower of the vale!

Their lady they name thee,
Their mistress proclaim thee,
Ah, grant that thy children on earth be as true
as long as the bowers
are radiant with flowers,
as long as the azure shall keep its bright hue

Sing gaily in chorus;
the bright angels o'er us
re-echo the strains we begin upon earth;
their harps are repeating
the notes of our greeting,
for Mary herself is the cause of our mirth
