For Catholics, May is dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary with popular devotional practices including the May procession.

The Miraculous Medal Shrine invites all for a joyful, vibrant and public veneration of Mary through hymns and recitation of the rosary on Monday, May 9 beginning at 11 a.m.

Place flowers at Mary’s feet as you offer up your petitions and intentions. First Holy Communicants from Immaculate Heart of Mary School in Philadelphia will participate in the procession.

The shrine is located at 475 East Chelten Avenue in Philadelphia’s Germantown section.
