Reciting the Rosary as they went, students from All Saints School carried a statue of Mary through the streets of South Omaha Friday morning.
The procession began at their school St Francis Cabrini Church and ended at St Joseph Church.
Martin Burki says the tradition is decades old. He says "hopefully they take away the idea of their catholicity as far as camaraderie with each other celebrating the catholic church itself, celebrating Mary as the mother of the church and the mother of Jesus".
The procession was part of the May Crowning ceremony.
