At St. Rita’s Youth Mass this evening, we had a Mother’s Day/May Crowning of the Blessed Mother statue outside the church. Special thanks to. . .
~ Ms. Rita Bernauer ~

~ Little Natalie and Bella ~
For leading the procession with us and crowing our Blessed Mother!
Remember, oh most gracious virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection, implored your help, or sought your intercession, was left unaided. Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto you, oh virgin of virgins my mother. To you I come – before you I stand – sinful and sorrowful. Oh mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in your mercy hear and answer me. Amen!
Happy Mother’s Day, Mama Mary!
