The St. Anne’s Shrine Preservation Society (SASPS) is actively seeking the support of people, far and wide, who desire to help us preserve this beautiful center of Catholic worship for generations to come. You’ve read the stories in local and regional media, perhaps have come to visit and see the ongoing efforts to stabilize and restore this church, and want to help ensure its survival for generations to come.
SASPS is a registered non-profit corporation in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and is a federal 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation. All contributions are tax-deductable to the extent allowable, and ALL donations received are earmarked 100% for the restoration of this Shrine and will only be used for that purpose. We have no employees; all workers, from the Board to the Gift Shop are volunteers.
How to Help
We invite you to help donate to the preservation by the following means:
- Visit the Shrine! We are open 7 days a week from 8:00AM to 6:00PM. We accept donations of CATHOLIC devotional articles for us to present to visitors for their donations. Additionally, you can obtain candles for placement in the downstairs shrine; a donation of $1.00 for a small candle (4 hour), or $5.00 donation for a large candle (5 day). We also accept free-will offerings in the gift shop or anonymously at the entrance to the pews.
