Beautiful and Impressive Ceremony at St. Monica's Church Sunday Evening.

N t The ceremony was performed by Miss Margaret O'Keefe, assisted by Misses Eva Bea illicit. Agnes Cleary and President Mary Jordan, as maid of honor. The crown bearer was Kosario Blouin. with M. Beaulieu and Marie Vania acting as flower girls. Beautiful ba-kets were carried by the Holy An gels sodality and six other little ones. Marshal Mildred Metine carried out her part so efficiently that every one and everything was performed perfectlv. Little tots carried baskets liefore the banners. Fourteen girls carried gar lands and od young ladies carried Mowers. Space does not allow naming all who took part, but each vear the crowning seems more beautiful than any in the pat. After the May queen and her as. sistants banked every step of the altar with the richest and rarest of flowers, all took their places and listened sell bound to a very eloquent, masterly sermon on our blessed Mother, the queen and mother of each good odal tst. Bev. P. M. Mcccnna pictured most beautifully the marriace of-Caim and what Jesus did for His mother. At. its close, the address being all too short, benediction of the blessed sacra -ment was given, which closed the serv ice. The lien-diction was sung by the members of the sodalities, with one of the sisters at the organ. The soecess of the May day pnires sioii is due to the director. Rev. P. M. McKenna. and the nffiiers: President. Jordan: vice-president. Mtss Ne! son: secretary. Mi's talcajmi; and treasurer, Mi Yanetti.
