Saints Joachim & Anne, Parents of the Blessed Virgin Mary
The couple has been venerated since the second century. Devotion to St. Anne especially flourished in the Eastern Church since the sixth century, and then the devotion spread to the Western Church. The couple must have been steeped in the Jewish tradition; which they, in turn, passed on to their daughter, Mary. The message of God given to the Jewish people over the centuries so captured the heart of Mary that she was ready and anxious to say “yes” to whatever God asked of her, no matter how difficult the challenge that was placed before her.
Join us for the Feast of the parents of the Blessed Virgin Mary; which is celebrated this Thursday, July 26th, with Mass at 8:00 a.m.Back to Events Listing
