The Annals of Saint Anne

Welcome to the Annals of Saint Anne!

The Annals of Saint Anne is published by the Shrine of Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré, a famous Canadian place of pilgrimage, whose origins goes back to 1658, near the St. Lawrence River, 35 kilometers east of the city of Québec.

The Annals of Saint Anne, published 6 times a year, is a Popular Catholic Magazine of reflection and spirituality, news from the Shrine, culture and society, art and history. The Basilica of Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré and its works of art are highlighted in texts and illustrations. The magazine reaches thousands of pilgrims and friends of the Shrine of Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré and the Good Saint Anne.

The Shrine also publishes a magazine in French: Revue Sainte Anne.

The Revue Sainte Anne, first known as the Annales de la Bonne Sainte Anne, was founded in 1873 by Father Nazaire-Alphonse Leclerc. Since 1898, the magazine has been published by the Redemptorists, a religious community founded in Italy by Saint Alphonsus of Liguori and established in Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré since 1878.

The Revue Sainte Anne and The Annals of Saint Anne are available in print and digital versions.

All around me, there is so much to see each day. Behind the cold, austere and distant faces, lives are hidden. Sadness and happiness are concealed under appearances. However, a simple glance, a smile or a wink, a caring gesture or words of kindness can change everything. That is all it takes to restore hope and happiness, to inspire and to invite you to take one step further. It is so easy to pass by without seeing anything, to continue on your way without paying attention to others, to act as if nothing has happened. In other words, it is so easy to think only of yourself. How many times have I forgotten to greet someone, to stop and talk or to say thank you?

Called To Be a Diaconal Church

Since 1964, when the Second Vatican Council called for the restoration of the permanent diaconate in the Church, many deacons have been ordained in our dioceses. We see them in various settings: assisting the priest at Mass and preaching, presiding at Liturgies of the Word that include baptisms, weddings and funerals and participating in parish leadership teams. Perhaps, we know some men who have been ordained to the diaconate and have had the occasion to listen to them speak of their ministry.
