At St. Gregory the Great School May is a special month. Devotions to the Blessed Virgin Mary are held in the Catholic Church honoring the Virgin Mary as "the Queen of May". These services may take place inside or outside. Some second and eighth graders are chosen to lead a solemn procession. The children recite the rosary on this special day, and at the close of the ceremony a statue of the Blessed Virgin is crowned with a garland of roses.
