Mary, Queen of May

St. John the Baptist, New Haven, rosary garden was dedicated on May 5. Following the recitation of the rosary and the Litany of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the annual May crowning by the second and eighth graders was held. Spearheaded by the Raiders Wellness Committee with the blessing of the parish pastor, the final stage of the project was completed and blessed by current pastor, Father Bill Sullivan. The Rosary Sodality has agreed to maintain the gardens that started with raised boxes and advanced through phases including the brick campaign, development year and flower planting. One of its coordinators, Kerri Zurbuch, summarized, “It is our hope the community will enjoy and visit the garden for many years to come.” Eighth-graders Veronica Hathaway and Grace Renbarger crowned Mary.
