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.
