May Procession

This afternoon the Cathedral Primary School had its annual May Procession. The children and staff said the rosary and sang various simple Marian songs, before coming into the Cathedral to finish with Benediction. In the playground they crowned a statue of Our Lady with a crown of flowers - a sign of devotion to her as Mother of God and Mother of the Church. Many children also left floral tributes around the statue, though these were later taken to give to relatives; the remainder will be sent to residential homes for the elderly.
