St Anne Feast Day 2011


Every year I try to make it a point to make a pilgrimage to St Anne's Church Bukit Mertajam  for St Anne's Feast Day. The actual feast day falls on 26th of July and usually there will be a 10 days Novena celebration in conjunction with the feast day. The candle light vigil / mass will usually be held on a Saturday in between the 10 days Novena.

Throng of people!! Not just Catholics / Christians gather here but also Non-Christians..

Pilgrims heading up / down the old church
Pilgrims around the new church (mass in session, yeap..done outdoors! - where to sit? on the grass..hehehe)

Or anywhere else that has space to sit! :p

Dear Saint Anne,
I praise god and honor you for having been given the grace to be the mother of the Blessed Virgin Mary and grandmother of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Many who have impored your help have felt the happy effects of your goodness and powerful intercession. Encouraged by this thought, I humbly implore you, O good Saint Anne to hear my request

(here mention your petition)

O loving Saint Anne, whose heart is ever full of human sympathy for those in trouble, pain or anxiety, have pity on me and grant me your favour as you have done for others in so many wonderful cases for the greater glory of God. Help me to know, love and follow Jesus by being a concerned citizen and an active member of His Church and to reach Heaven, there to praise God with you forever and ever.
