St. Anne is said to be the mother of Mary and the grandmother of Jesus. Commonly known as the patron saint of mothers, grandmothers, women in labor, childless women, and the country of Canada, the variety of Saint Anne gifts we carry at St. Patrick's Guild gives you wonderful items to give to anyone for whom she is the patron saint, one who carries her name or for a Confirmation candidate who has chosen Mary as their confirmation name. Our St. Anne gifts include a St. Anne statue, a St. Anne medal and a St. Anne rosary.
Believing themselves to be barren, Anne and Joachim constantly prayed for an end to their childlessness. At last, an angel appeared to Anne, assuring her that she would conceive and that her child 'shall be blessed by all the world.' Anne responded by promising to dedicate her child to the service of God which she did when Mary was quite young. Our Saint Anne gifts, including the St. Anne statue, the St. Anne medal or the St. Anne rosary, make a great spiritual gift to give to anyone who has a special devotion to Saint Anne, any of the above mentioned women for whom she is a patron saint or would be especially appropriate for a Confirmation candidate taking the Confirmation name of Anne.
