One of our most storied traditions is the Lower School crowning of the Blessed Mother.  Families await it.  Alumni reminisce about it.  The event inspires us all.

It will happen.  Outside.  On the front steps.  A Statue of Mary will be there, beginning Thursday morning.

Any child and parent who wish to bring a flower to Mary may do so from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm this Thursday, and from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm on Friday.  Please come only as a family, and not in larger groups–social distancing!  (And please take a picture of your child with Mary and the flower, and email it to communications@providenceacademy.org!)  Any flowers laid at Mary’s feet will be brought inside and arranged, then added to Friday’s 3:00 pm tribute event.

Attendees will be welcome to witness the event, in parking spaces, from your cars.  We will have traffic attendants on hand to assist.  The event will be live-streamed, so for anyone present with an obscured view, it can be watched on phones as well.

Faculty members will be on hand to assist in Mary’s crowning, representing all the children who will be participating from nearby.

Further details will come mid-week.
