SAINT OF THE MONTH

St. Anne
Feast Day - July 26

The constant tradition of the Catholic Church gives us the name of Anne as the mother of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Mother of our Lord, Jesus Christ. In speaking to St. Anne, we are talking about the grandmother of Jesus.

Anne, and her husband Joachim, to be sure are special persons in the Catholic calendar of saints. In the divine plan of salvation, Anne and Joachim were given special places in the chain of events that eventually led to the birth of Jesus in Bethlehem.
