For many in the Catholic Church, May is known as the month of Mary.
Children from the Diocese of Brooklyn spent this weekend honoring the Blessed Mother. The youngest parishioners from Our Lady of The Snows in Floral Park, Queens got a chance to wear their communion gowns and suits again.
This time it was for a longstanding tradition of their May crowning.
The students brought flowers to a statue of the Blessed Mother and placed a crown on her head.
Earlier in the day, more than 300 students also showed their love through an art contest. They were challenged to depict the Blessed Mother in their own style.
The Bishop of Brooklyn, Robert Brennan, said the celebrations show a strong devotion among young people.
Each winner from the art contest received a special certificate for their hard work.
