Each year, on 26 July, all at St Anne’s participate in a special celebration to honour St Anne, the mother of the Blessed Virgin Mary, and the grandmother of Jesus, after whom St Anne’s Long Day Care Centre has appropriately been named.
This year again, representatives from the St Francis Xavier Church and Parish, including Father Michael Nilon and Sister Kathryn Sweeney, and parents, gathered with the Staff and children of St Anne’s to celebrate. Children from each of the rooms joined our visitors in the foyer to sing and entertain. A prayer was shared by Father Michael and the beautiful hymn, Hail Mary Gentle Woman was sung by Linda Quinn-Jarvis, one of the St Anne’s Educators. A huge celebratory cake was then cut and shared with everyone!
