As the largest indoor votive light shrine in southern New England, we have a wide array of votives that are available to be lit by our visitors. If you are unable to visit the shrine in person, you can request that a member of our volunteer staff light a candle for you.

To commemorate the 125th Anniversary of the dedication of the Shrine (Christmas Day, 1895), St. Anne’s Shrine Preservation Society will be offering a Mass on January 7, 2021, at 6:30 PM in the Shrine, celebrated by our Chaplain, Fr. Edward Murphy.
While we know that the actual anniversary will be on December 25th, it was felt that with the press of the Christmas celebrations in other parishes, family obligations, and desire to plan fully for this auspicious event, that offering this Mass the day after the traditional feast of the Epiphany would allow your Society to properly remember this event in the life of St. Anne Shrine.
For more information, please contact the Shrine office during regular business hours at 508-678-1510. Additional updates will be publicized here as well as on our events calendar above, under the Home > Ministries > Calendar of Events selection in the menu.
The Board of Directors of the St. Anne’s Shrine Preservation Society has appointed Ms. Dianne M. Scott, J.D., as the official archivist of the Society and Shrine.
In this position, Ms. Scott will be responsible for collecting, cataloguing, and preparing the official archives of St. Anne’s Church and Shrine for the Society from all public sources and existing records to preserve the history of this landmark for future generations.
The Society is interested in collecting information that may be held by past parishioners, volunteers, or clergy who were involved with the Parish and Shrine in the past; items of interest will be gratefully accepted, and, if desired, will be catalogued, photographed and/or digitized, and returned to the owner.
Please contact Ms. Scott at the Shrine office (509-678-1510) during regular business hours if you have information or items you wish to be included in our documentation and preservation efforts. All donations will be gratefully acknowledged in the records.
We at Saint Anne Shrine would like to offer our prayerful well wishes and sincere thanks to all the men and women in uniform who have served this great country.
