Our Lady of Perpetual Help Parish, Lindenhurst, honored Mary during the month dedicated to her by celebrating a traditional May Crowning in front of the church rectory on Saturday, May 2. With government regulations prohibiting sizable groups of people from gathering during the coronavirus crisis, attendees were limited to presiding Deacon Robert Becker, pastor Msgr. Joseph DeGrocco, associate pastor Father Frank Zero, cantor Debbie Holmes and parish music minister Christopher Ferraro. The ceremony featured the singing of Marian hymns, a Scripture reading and reflection, the recitation of the rosary and the placing of a floral wreath upon a statue of the Blessed Mother. Parishioners were able to view the service in real time during a live-stream broadcast on the OLPH Facebook page. (Photos by Gregory A. Shemitz)
