Each May the Sacred Heart Academy Community gathers together to crown an image of Mary, the Mother of God, our Mother and the Queen of Peace and to consecrate ourselves to God through her prayers. All students, faculty, and staff participate in yhis paraliturgy which includes a prayerful Living Rosary with scriptural meditations and beautiful hymns.
A senior is usually selected by her classmates to crown the Blessed Mother. Other seniors are also selected as the crowner’s attendant or as part of the Honor Guard. The seniors are asked to consider seriously the following criteria before casting a vote: Christian values such as honesty, sincerity, kindness, caring, service, and respectfulness and womanly qualities of gentleness, courage, conviction, and compassion.
