Immediately following the afternoon rosary on May 3rd the Little Sisters’ Chapel welcomed a special visitor. Arianna Barsotti, who had made her first Holy Communion the previous weekend, arrived wearing her special white dress. She joined a procession of Residents in the chapel bringing forth a bouquet of flowers to place before the statue of the Blessed Mother. Then with Mother Judith’s help Arianna carried the crown and placed it on top of the statue. The Residents were delighted to have a young visitor perform the honor of crowning Mary.
After the crowning, Arianna received her own statue of the Blessed Mother and a rosary.Resident Priest Father John Palko blessed both pieces. Best wishes to Arianna as she continues forming her Catholic faith!
