Saint of the Month
All who recognize Mary’s role in salvation history have every reason to honor the Mother whose daughter gave the world its Savior.
St. Anne (Mary’s mother) is patroness of all parents who have the important task of rearing the children to whom they have transmitted the gift of life.
Devotion to St. Anne began more than twelve centuries ago. In the mid-fourteenth century, Pope Urban VI approved the observance of a feast of St. Anne.
Prayer of the Month
Dear St. Anne, you never tire of assisting those who recommend themselves to you.
Trusting not in our merits but in your powerful intercession, we request your help through this present day with all its duties and responsibilities, all its situation whether happy or anguishing.
And when tomorrow becomes today, assist us anew for God’s glory and our good. Amen.
