Childrens May Crowning 2018

The Shrine of Our Lady of Pompeii’s May Crowning 2018

May, the month of Mary, was celebrated in a special way at the Shrine. Many years ago when the Shrine was a parish, the school children celebrated May by Crowning Mary. It was an exciting and happy event and the Alumni Committee of Our Lady of Pompeii is proud to continue this tradition.

The Alumni Committee was pleased to host the May Crowning once again this year on May 6, 2018 at the 11 o’clock Mass. The Alumni is made up of graduates of Our Lady of Pompeii School, past parishioners and those who love the Shrine.

Twenty children, decked in their Sunday best, were there to honor our Blessed Mother by placing beautiful flowers in vases in front of Mary and participating in Mass led by our Rector, Father Richard Fragomeni.

Joseph Roman read the 1st Reading and Janelle Uribe, dressed in white, placed the beautiful crown of flowers on Mary. The children sang songs led by Josie Falbo and Alumni, with Dr. Rick Selva and accompanied by James Janossy.

The children were given medals of Mary, donated by a generous anonymous donor, to remember this special day. The Alumni is looking forward to the next tribute to Mary on May 5, 2019. All children are welcome. Please come and be blessed.

Padre Pio of Pietrelcina Prayer Cenacle

Categories: Liturgical

Join us the first and third Wednesdays of the month 6:00 – 8:00 PM.

On a September morning in 1918, praying before the Crucifix in the choir of the old church, Padre Pio received the gift of the stigmata, or visible wounds of the crucifixion, that remained in his body, fresh and bleeding, for half a century, until his death September 23, 1968.

The Holy Father John Paul II granted the title of “Venerable” on December 18, 1997, and he was canonized a saint on June 16, 2002.

The Shrine has held a prayer service to Padre Pio for many years.  Many pilgrims place their intentions in his care.  Join us the first and third Wednesdays of the month from 6:00 – 8:00 PM.
