The Ste-Anne-de-Prescott church will host its fifteenth annual pilgrimage celebration on July 23: a procession in honour of St Anne, followed by a spaghetti and grilled pork dinner ($20). After dinner, attendees will have a choice between a farm tour or bocce ball.
Spotlighted this year is the Dicaire family, one of the founding families of the parish. A certificate in the family’s name will be placed in the vestry, beside those of previously honoured families.
There will be a brief presentation at mass on the history of the family, as well as an exhibit of photos and documents at the community centre.
Less famous than the Ste-Anne-de-Beaupré pilgrimage which takes place annually in Quebec, attracting crowds from all over the world, Ste-Anne-de-Prescott’s pilgrimage takes place in the intimacy of a small, welcoming parish. The celebration takes place each year on the Sunday closest to the day of St. Anne.
Mass begins at 10 a.m., followed by a procession through the streets of the village. Pilgrims are invited to recite their prayers and contemplate a display of relics installed on Main Street, below the statue of St. Anne. The final benediction will take place inside the church.
