Annunciation in Ave Maria - 2015

The Feast of the Annunciation, commemerating the announcement by the angel Gabriel to the Virgin Mary that she would bear the Christ child, is always a special day for the town and university in Ave Maria.

The day began with a handful of residents gathered outside the oratory at daybreak. Unfortunately, morning overcast prevented the group from seeing the sun rise behind the oratory, which is oriented so that the sun breaks the horizon directly behind the church on March 25.

A large group of people participated in the annual Eucharistic Procession around the oratory following a Mass at noon.

The oratory was packed at 5 p.m. for a Mass celebrated by Bishop Frank Dewane, after which the bishop formally consecrated the university to Mary.

 Following the consecration, and an expression of gratitude to the artist who carved the marble Annunciation sculpture on the oratory, Márton Váró, and the Windfeldt family that financed the project, there was a large gathering on the university mall across from the church with a cook-out followed by a concert.
