Crowning the Queen of May.
"The Crowning is symbolic of Mother Mary as Queen of Heaven and of our lives."_ It is a tradition at Ave Maria Convent Negombo, to honour Mother Mary each May. May is a time when Spring is at the height of its beauty. Just as Spring is connected with nature renewing itself, Mary is connected to giving new life to the world through the birth of Jesus Christ. Thus, this year, on the 26th of May, Ave Maria Convent held its annual May procession to honour our Lady and crown the May Queen in a grand scale. Each class in the college made their own procession and honoured the blessed Virgin Mary with flowers and prayers. Finally, a rosary of balloons was released to the air in order to commermorate the occasion.
