I still remember the May Crowning during the year I made my First Communion.
It was so special. It was a beautiful and very windy day in May. I remember beaming with a smile in my First Communion dress. The wind whipped my little veil as we first communicants marched in a little line across the parking lot and into the church.
Now, as a mother, I want my children to grow up with the same love and beautiful memories of the May Crowning that I was blessed with.
Celebrate May Crowning
This can be as simple as you would like. While my family always attended a May Crowning with a procession at church, we would also make a little crown of flowers for our Mary statue in our backyard. We would do a little procession to crown Mary with just our family.
May Crowning Printables
The May Crowning is such a simple yet beautiful celebration. This year, I made little printables for you to invite others to yours. I was inspired after hearing how many of your children loved the printable Saint Valentines. These little cards are perfect for teachers to send home with students when inviting parents to a May Crowning. Or your children to give them to grandparents and friends etc.
For a simple version of a May Crowning, I have a Mary printable where your child can draw a beautiful crown on Mary. If you want, you could play some of your favorite Marian hymns in the background!
If they’re too little for coloring our babies can still stay close to Mama Mary with our Children’s Miraculous Medal. This giant Miraculous Medal is made from 100% food grade silicone so it’s safe for little ones to squeeze and chew while admiring a the Blessed Mother and the Miraculous Medal in all its glory.
Let’s honor Mary, the Mother of God, Queen of Heaven and Earth!
