St Anne And Mary

Though not mentioned in the Scriptures, the parents of Mary (Joachim and Anna) were written about in early Christian writings and a devotion to them evolved quickly, especially in the East.

Our shrine dedicated to St. Anne has been an important place of pilgrimage throughout the years.

In addition to the beautiful statue of St. Anne teaching her yond daughter, Mary a relic of St. Anne is buried in the shrine’s altar.

St. Anne is the patroness of mothers and grandmothers.

The feast of St. Anne and St. Joachim is celebrated on July 26.
