PAGE SIX THE GUARDIAN, MAY 10, 1930 SMITH CHRIST KING CHURCH. May Sunday was observed at Christ King Churzh with High Mass at ten o'clock and in the afternoon at three, the May procession and the crown- ing of the Blessed Virgin's statue. The altars were beautifully adorned, white and pink roses and deeply green foliage being use'd in artistic profusion. The procession of little girls, cloth- ed in white and wearing wreaths and veils, were led into the church by the pas~or, Rev. John F. McBarron, pre- ceded by the cross bearer and the acolytes. Mary Valenzcius crowned Our Blessed Lady with a wreath of white roses and Margaret Bran read the Act of Consecration. During this ceremony the choir sang the old fa- miliar hymns, known as "May hymns." Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament was given after the recitation of the Rosary and Litanies.
