A long procession of students, parents, faculty, and administrators of the St. Jerome Regional School walked silently through the west end of Tamaqua as they held their May Procession honoring the Blessed Virgin Mary. The event was held during the morning Mass that preceded classes followed by the crowning of the Blessed Mother. Pictured are members of her blessed court from left Paige Pratt, 8, queen Emily Pilla, 14, and Caitlin Kernich, 8. Other members of the court consisted of Annette Ritzko, 14, Rachel Meier, 13, Kaylee Ceci, 14, and Bridgette Rossi, 15.
