Pilgrim Statue of the Virgin Mary 

The month of May is dedicated to Our Lady. One way to show a special love for our heavenly mother is to welcome the Pilgrim Statue of the Virgin Mary. If you are interested in hosting the Pilgrim Statue, please register your name on the sign-up sheets in the foyer. 

The Legion of Mary is coordinating this valuable exercise and would be happy to assist in bringing the statue to your home.
