===== May Crowning

Virgin Mary Crowning

The month of May is dedicated to Mary. The traditional practice of crowning an image of Mary is done on the first day of May; however, this year at Transfiguration Church we celebrated May Crowning on the First Communion Masses on Saturday, May 2, 2021, to have the communicants bring to our Blessed Mother a beautiful bouquet of flowers. 
We invite the parish community to continue to pray for these children who received the Holy Body of Christ for the first time.
 

Coronación de Virgen Maria

El mes de mayo está dedicado a María. La práctica tradicional de coronar una imagen de María se realiza el primer día de mayo; sin embargo, este año en la Iglesia de la Transfiguración celebramos la Coronación de Mayo en las Misas de Primera Comunión el Sábado 2 de Mayo de 2021, que los comulgantes lleven a la Santísima Virgen un hermoso ramo de flores.

Invitamos a la comunidad parroquial a continuar orando por estos niños que recibieron el Santo Cuerpo de Cristo por primera vez.
