Pope John Paul II

    "When you wonder about the mystery of yourself, look to Christ, who gives you the meaning of life. When you wonder what it means to be a mature person, look to Christ, who is the fulfillness of humanity. And when you wonder about your role in the future of the world look to Christ. "

    Crowning of Mary



    Crownig of Mary at Council #5980

    Honoring Mary, Our Heavenly Mother


    The following excerpt is from Cardinal Dolan's May 11th, 2017, column in Catholic New York.

    "May is the month our Catholic piety dedicates to the Blessed Mother. This particularly beautiful month is given to her, since it is the height of the new life of spring, with nature lustily vibrant, and she is the Mother of the One who is 'the way, the truth and the life,' Jesus!"

    Our Council celebrates The Crowning of Mary on the first Monday in May. This year was exceptional, given the efforts and generosity of so many people who helped transform our front lawn to a place of beauty, piety and peace.
