Many of you may not know the origin of the statue that is the first image you see when driving up to our school. This is the statue we use for the May Crowning of Mary.
For 16 years, the Polselli family struggled to find a way to honor their mother Lucy who had passed away. In 2000, the family had a conversation with our own Karen Sucher, and the answer came to them to donate a statue of the Holy Family, Mary, Joseph, and Jesus as a young child to Holy Family Regional School. Holy Family has been a part of the Polselli family for years as their daughters attended when it was called St. Andrew. The life-sized statue was delivered from Italy to the North Campus on Lucy Polselli’s birthday. The statue honors all mothers and grandmothers. Holy Family is extremely blessed to have this same statue at South Campus too.
We are thankful to the Polselli family for giving us this beautiful statue of the Holy Family that has been treasured for many years.
We are also thankful to Mary, Our Mother who watches over us and continues to bless our school family.
We honor the Blessed Mother and all the special women in our lives.
Wishing you all a very blessed Mothers’ Day.
