Serving Christ and Connecting Catholics in Western North Carolina

051117 cchsCHARLOTTE – Charlotte Catholic High School held its annual May Crowning on May 1 in the school chapel.
A tradition of the Catholic Church is to dedicate each month of the year to a certain devotion.

The Virgin Mary is honored as “the Queen of May,” and a statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary is ceremonially crowned each year to signify her as Queen of Heaven and the Mother of God.

Eight Charlotte Catholic freshmen were selected by their theology teachers to be a part of Mary’s Court: Lauren Dziak, Victoria Fontana, Julianna Hancock, Emma Joseph, Michayla Ross, Taylor Danser, Noah Hooper, Bobby Jones, Cole Knapp and Gilbert Shea.
