May crowning at Bishop White Seminary

the Inland Register

(From the May 18, 2006 edition of the Inland Register)

Eighteen Bishop White Seminarians began the month of May with a crowning of their outdoor statue of the Blessed Virgin. The crowning ceremony included hymns, readings and a litany to Our Lady. Msgr. Robert Pearson (center, front), Director of Spiritual Formation for Bishop White, blessed the crown and led the ritual. The seminary’s tradition is for the youngest seminarian to place the floral crown on the statue; this year, the honor fell to first-year seminarian Nathan Stadelman. The crown of roses, flowers and ribbons was created and donated by Deacon John Sicilia, Director of Deacons for the Spokane Diocese. (IR photo from Bishop White Seminary, Spokane)
