Feast of Saints Anne & Joachim — 3 Comments

  1. My parents named me after Saint Anne, and I know that her day is coming up this 26th of July. I how live in East Providence, RI. and I
    would like to follow the novena to Saint Anne is there anyway I could
    follow the prayer online?

    Thank you

    • We are all greatful to St Anne in many ways. In this year novena let us pray for the Most Rev. Edgar M. da Cunha, S. D. V. as our Eighth Bishop of Fall River. At the same time, we thank God for Bishop Coleman’s fifty years of service as priest and for his eleven years as our Bishop.

  2. I was born on July 26 and my middle name is Anne in honor of St. Anne. I live in New Bedford and make a visit to the Shrine every year on my birthday and have since I was little and my parents brought me. I will be there on Friday
