May Crowning at Our Lady of Lourdes Shrine in Ireland

 Members of the Children's Rosary from St. Patrick's Parish in Castledawson, Ireland met on May 22 for a May Crowning and Children's Rosary at Our Lady of Lourdes Shrine in Ireland. The children processed to the grotto and led the Rosary. They crowned Our Lady and also placed roses and flowers at the foot of her statue at the end of each decade. 

The Children's Rosary group leader explained that on the way to the Shrine it was pouring rain and there was concern for the weather. Even as preparations began it was raining heavily but the sky beautifully cleared just in time for the procession, crowning and Children's Rosary. 

It is inspiring to see the mentorship that happens between the children. In the above picture a six year old boy, shown with the multicolor shirt, was being helped by one of the other members of the Children's Rosary.
