We want to thank everyone who attended our first annual Pasta Dinner Fundraiser! We hope you enjoyed the food. We also thank our volunteers who gave up their Saturday to help us with this task. Congratulations to all those who won the raffle prizes. #savesaintannes
Since we’ve returned the Tabernacle back to the sanctuary in the lower church, we repurposed the chapel. We are happy to announce that St. Jude has been returned home to his original chapel. These photos show the chapel in the 1970s and the newly created Chapel today.
2020 marks are very special year for us at the shrine. The lower “crypt” church, colloquially known as the “shrine” will mark its 125th anniversary, on December 25 (Christmas Day).
From 1895 to 1906 the lower church served as the parish church of Saint Anne, while the construction of the magnificent upper church was ongoing. Since the mid 1920’s the lower church has become a place of healing, prayer and pilgrimage. Many unexplained healings occurred under the shrine’s direction of Father Vincent Marchildon, OP and Father Pierre Lachance, OP.
Please remember St. Anne in your prayers along with the members of the St. Anne Shrine Preservation Society as we mark this jubilee year!
Join us tomorrow Sunday October 11th as we have devotions in honor of Our Lady of Fatima in the shrine at 3:00pm. Devotions will consist of the Chaplet of Divine Mercy, the Holy Rosary in honor of Our Lady of Fatima.
