The St. Mary Immaculate School community in Plainfield honored Mary through a May Crowning ceremony on May 10, during the regular weekly school Mass.

May Crowning is a special ceremony where students present an image of Mary with a crown of flowers.

Several eighth grade leaders comprised the court, one of whom, Cayla Czerak, gave Our Lady her crown.

Other students were also chosen to process into the church and present Mary with flowers. The second grade first communicants served as the honor guard for this beautiful ceremony.
