|Mary Mother of Jesus|
of St. Mary
in Minneapolis, Minnesota, was formerly a
center of devotion to St. Anne.
The Basilica is blest in the possession of a precious relic of the Saint, now imbedded in a side altar.
In former years devoted clients of St. Anne came in large numbers to venerate the relic when presented for public veneration;
Many favors were received through the loving mother of the Mother of Mercy.
[In recent years the shrine of St. Anne also serves as a memorial to children and youths who have died.]
