ST. MARY'S o ln, the sprouting of buds on trees, the beautiful blossoms in the orchard, all help to regener- ate a lively feeling, fresh and pure, that the season of spring has come to Saint Mary's. The religious services of Holy Week and the Easter holidays usher in the season of spring. The Tenebrae Services, adoration at the "Piwniczka" lChrist's prison celll and "Gr6b" lChrist's gravel, the blessings of Holy Saturday, all prepare for the traditional "sTwieconka" lthe hallow-farel. In this custom the spirit of brotherly love, unity, and ioy over Christ's triumph of sin and spiritual death are commemorated. For the "swieconka" each student brings food, as a gift to help in making this a ioyous festivity. A table is beautifully decorated and on it are placed the many diFferent foods. ln the center, a Paschal lamb rests as a symbol of the Risen Christ. When all is in readiness one of the Fathers of the Faculty- prays over and blesses the food after which all partake of the festal banquet. On March l 9th is celebrated the feast of St. Joseph and Founder's Day, on May 3rd the Feast of Our Lady, Queen of Poland. The month of May itself is again dedicated to Her and opens with a solemn procession to Her beautiful Grotto on the campus. The daily May devotions are the student's tribute of honor and love to his Mother in Heaven. The Spring concert pools the musical abilities of all campus forces. Other campus processions take place on the Feast of Corpus Christi to the four altars, and for the closing of May devotions to the Grotto. The Farewell Parties for the grad- uates on the eve of graduation close the school year and bring down the curtain on the many and varied customs of the Orchard Lake Schools. .

IN THE WINTER day before Ash-Wednesday the annual "Pqczki Party" is held. During the party all have a gay time singing Polish folk songs and eating many "pqczki" or ielly doughnuts. On Ash Wednesday the merry-making ceases and Lent is spent in fasting and attending Lenten services fGorzkie Zalej and Stations of the Cross in preparation for the glorious triumph o'f Christ over death. The sombreness ofthe death of wintei' and its dormant life burst forth in full glory in the new vitality of spring. On the Feast ofthe Epiphany stu- dents observe the Polish custom of marking the entrance doors of the residence halls with the tradi- tional initials of the Magi.
