The students of Notre Dame Elementary School in Utica recently crowned Mary as their Queen of Heaven and of Earth. The Blessed Mother was crowned by sisters Amelia and Brianna Fields (above). Kindergarteners Molly Trinkaus (below center) brought flowers to be given to Mary and Rocco Giruzzi (below left) used his rosary to pray along with the older students. The fourth-, fifth-, and sixth-grade students led the school in a living rosary, which wrapped around the auditorium (below right).  (Photos courtesy Sondra Nassar)
