Novena to St. Anne

Starting Sunday July 17, we begin spiritual preparation for St. Anne’s feast day with a novena of prayer.  Each day, in addition to the 11:30am, Mass will be celebrated in the Shrine at 6:30pm.

This year, we are fortunate to have a series of speakers share with us the fruit of their prayer, as well as their lived experience, as they help us encounter Christ more profoundly.

The subjects presented are as follows:

  • Ideals
  • The Paschal Mystery
  • The Sacrament of Reconciliation
  • Communicating with God
  • The Universal Call to Holiness
  • Christ the Man, Christ in man and woman
  • The Community of Love
  • The Christian in Action
  • The Future

If you can’t make it to the Shrine for the novena events, you are nevertheless invited to join us in prayer.  Below, please find the Chaplet of St. Anne and the novena prayer that will be used each day at St. Anne’s Parish and Shrine.  Let us pray for each other during this novena that the Lord may bless and strengthen us, that He may send His Holy Spirit to rest upon us.  Let us ask St. Anne, our great patroness and protector, for her aid and her prayer.

Chaplet of Saint Anne
1. In honor of Jesus, say 1 Our Father… and 5 Hail Mary’s.
Then say, “Jesus, Mary, Anne, grant us the favor we ask.”
2. In honor of Mary, say 1 Our Father… and 5 Hail Mary’s.
Then say, “Jesus, Mary, Anne, grant us the favor we ask.”
3. In honor of Saint Anne, say 1 Our Father… and 5 Hail Mary’s.
Then say, “Jesus, Mary, Anne, grant us the favor we ask.”

Remember O Saint Anne, whose name signifies grace and mercy, that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection, implored your help, and sought your intercession was left unaided. Inspired by this confidence, we fly unto you, good and kind mother; before you we kneel, sinful and sorrowful. O holy mother of the immaculate Virgin Mary, despise not our petitions, but hear us and answer our prayer. Amen.
