Saint Mary's is
dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary and has placed
itself under her protection. The Statue of the
Blessed Virgin that is situated in the most
prominent place on campus was donated by the Zeiter
family in memory of their son, Edmund Zeiter, Class
of 1973. It is the focal point for student prayers
including the rosary.
Each May, the tradition of May
Crowning is celebrated by the student body as they
gather at the foot of the statue of Mary while she
is presented with a crown of roses.
