The Catholic Fellowship of Young Filipino Professionals (CFYFP) wishes to host its 5th Annual Flores de Mayo celebration at the Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Church in Astoria, New York on May 5, 2013. Following the mass, there will be a Flores de Mayo program/fellowship and light reception.

Flores de Mayo (flowers of May) is a Catholic festival held in the month of May in honor of the Virgin Mary. For the whole month of May, prayers and flowers are offered to the Virgin Mary. A variety of community congregations, feasts, song and dance performances make this festival one of the most colorful and biggest events in the Philippines.

The highlight of the celebration is the Santacruzan (Festival of the Holy Cross), a procession typically held on the last day of Flores de Mayo. The procession commemorates the search of the Holy Cross by Queen Helena (Reyna Elena) and her son, Constantine the Great. It is the wooden, Holy Cross, on which Jesus Christ was nailed.
