Roses for Our Lady, a lay Catholic organization in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee, will host Milwaukee’s largest May Crowning and Outdoor Eucharistic Rosary Procession on Sunday, May 10, 2015 beginning at 2 p.m. at the Archdiocesan Marian Shrine,141 N. 68th St., Milwaukee (located on 68th and Stevenson streets).

The May Crowning includes exposition of the Blessed Sacrament, a traditional May Crowning of Our Lady's statue by first communicants Anna O'Brien from St. John Vianney Parish, and Billy Larson from Tri-Parish Dodge County (the winners of the organization’s May Crowning contest). Also included will be a Eucharistic procession with rosary, hymns sung by Milwaukee’s own Andress Sisters, a reflection by Fr. Timothy Kitzke, Roses for Our Lady's spiritual advisor, and Benediction.
All are welcome to attend. This is an outdoor event-please bring a lawn chair to sit on.
First Communicants are invited to wear their First Holy Communion attire – each first communicant in attendance will receive a blessed rosary from Fr. Kitzke.
In case of rain, the event will be held indoors at St. Vincent Pallotti Catholic Church, 5424 W. Bluemound Road, Milwaukee.
