The Feast Day of St Anne – July ’17

On Wednesday 26 July 2017 we will celebrate the Feast Day of St Anne.  We invite all parents to join us at 11am for morning tea and the cutting of a cake to honour this celebration.

St Anne was the mother of the Blessed Mother of Jesus, Mary. The Catholic Church assigns each canonised Saint a “feast day” to especially remember them. Our Children’s Centre was named after St Anne.

In January 2015 Adam Sullivan (Assistant Principal of Holy Family Catholic Primary School) gifted us with two unique statues that he had crafted from timber—St Anne and her daughter Mary (the mother of Jesus). The statues were blessed by Fr Michael Nilon, the Parish Priest of Ballina’s St Francis Xavier Parish, on Friday 24 July 2015. They stand humbly together in our Centre’s foyer
