Saint Anne Chapel and Her Relic

The chapel of Saint Anne located at the front of the Basilica is also concecrated.This is where a relic of Saint Anne is exhibited, which was given to the Shrine by Pope John XXIII. The great mosaic of this chapel evokes her role as protector of those who are small and humble and all those who suffer.

During the vigil of the Feast of Saint Anne celebrated in 2013, the first statue of Saint Anne brought by Monsignor de Laval in 1662, and worshipped by pilgrims for centuries, was placed on the left, in front of the Saint Anne Chapel altar. Pilgrims and visitors can now admire it always and pray at the feet of this patrimonial statue.
