St. Anne Shrine Preservation Society is very happy to present the new tabernacle for the Shrine. It was acquired today (Thursday) from the former Holy Cross Church in Fall River. The Society extends a very special thank you to Father Thomas Washburn and the Cathedral of Saint Mary of the Assumption for graciously allowing us to give it a new home here at Saint Anne.
Due to its size and the fact that it is made of solid marble, we have placed the tabernacle in the main downstairs sanctuary.
Please be aware that, according to Catholic belief, Our Lord is truly present in the Tabernacle when He is reserved there. This is indicated by the lit sanctuary candle. So, when you come to visit us, please be aware that HE IS PRESENT in the main Shrine space, and should conduct yourself accordingly.
