St. Edith Stein


    "Things were in God's plan which I had not planned at all. I am coming to the living faith and conviction that - from God's point of view - there is no chance and that the whole of my life, down to every detail, has been mapped out in God's divine providence and makes complete and perfect sense in God's all-seeing eyes. "

    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.
