A Very Special Feast Day

Today, July 26th, is a double feast day! Today we remember Saint Anne and Saint Joachim, Mary's parents.

Click here to download this picture of Mary and her parents and you can colour it.

There is a church in Jerusalem that is built over what tradition says is the site of the home of St. Joachim and St. Anne and the birthplace of Mary. Not surprisingly it is called the Church of Saint Anne!

This beautiful statute of Anne and Mary is inside the church. Our master took this photo when she was in Israel in March.

Hey there is our granny in the orange shirt!! That's kinda neat Cloë our granny is at the site of where Jesus's granny lived!

Did you know Tallulah that there is a giant church in Canada that honours Saint Anne?

No I don't think I did. Where is it?

It's called Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré and it is just past Quebec City.

Don't forget to call your grandparents today and tell them how much you love and appreciate them!
