She crowned The Blessed Mother Mary. Her court consisted of two students, a boy and girl, from each grade The month of May was dedicated to the Virgin Mary in the 18th century by Father Latvia of the Roman College of the Society of Jesus. According to, the thought behind dedicating a mother to the Blessed Mother was to “to promote devotion to Mary among the students as a way to counteract infidelity and immorality.”
