Vilma Angulo - St. Bonaventure Church
DAVIE | On May 11, over 600 students faculty and staff at St. Bonaventure School honored the Blessed Mother with a procession and recitation of the rosary around the perimeter of their school and church. Leaving the school, the students traveled south on S.W. 136th Avenue in Davie and then west on S.W. 14th Street reciting the rosary.
The procession was led by second grade girls wearing their white first Communion dresses and carrying garlands of flowers. They were followed by an honor guard of eighth grade students with an altar for Mary bearing her image and the crown they would use upon arriving at St. Bonaventure Church for Mass. Each class was led by a banner they made or a statue of Mary representing their class.
Before the celebration in the church, two second graders placed the beautiful crown on Mary. The crown was handmade in Argentina by Discalced Carmelite sisters at the Convent of San Bernardo in Salta.
