May Procession

Dear Parents,

It does not seem possible but the merry month of May is just around the corner; and for the Holy Cross community that means we are looking forward to our May Procession and the Crowning of the Blessed Virgin Mary during the morning on May 01 beginning at 9:00 am in front of the Blessed Mother statue on State Street.

 

It is with great pleasure that we inform you that our precious second graders will be in procession behind the platform on which rests the statue of Our Lady of Fatima. This is especially befitting as many of them will be celebrating their First Holy Communion on May 18, 2019.

 

Please know that all of our second graders will participate in the procession. All second grade students will be appropriately dressed in their Sunday best outfit; i.e. dress pants, skirts, dresses. Boys do not have to wear a tie unless that is the choice made by the family. There is no need to buy anything new for this event, however, be advised that Tag Day attire is not appropriate. Following the Procession and Crowning in the church students will change into their gym uniforms.  If there are any parents who might assist us with the changing of clothing following our celebration, we would be most grateful for the help.

 

Second grade students will wear their First Holy Communion clothes to school on Wednesday, May 22, 2019. The students will process into the church during our regularly scheduled weekly Mass. Please provide a suitable clothing bag in which to hang their attire after the Mass. Those students who will not be receiving First Holy Communion will wear the Sunday-best outfit worn on the day of the May Procession.  Once again, Following the Procession and Crowning in the church students will change into their gym uniforms.  Once again, if there are any parents who might assist us with the changing of clothing following our celebration, we would be most grateful for the help.

 

These events are very special for our second graders. We look forward to your being able to join us.
