The Basilica of St. Anne de Beaupré

Located near Quebec City (just 20 miles east of Quebec City), the Shrine of St. Anne de Beaupré (1658) is the first place of pilgrimage in North America. It is dedicated to St. Anne mother of Mary and grand mother of Jesus. The basilica is also known as a place of miracles. One of the builders of the original church, Louis Guimont, helped build the church despite having severe scoliosis and needing the aid of a crutch. When the church was complete, he was able to walk independently. Subsequent visitors to the church who have prayed have left their canes, crutches and walking aides behind as testament to their healing. The main wall when you first walk into the basilica is now completely covered with crutches. In 1876, Saint Anne was proclaimed the patron saint of Québec.


The Basilica of Sainte Anne de Beaupré also has the only copy of Michelangelo's Pietà. The original is in the Vatican City.

A PILGRIM'S PRAYER TO SAINT ANNE

Saint Anne, I have come to honour you and to call upon you in this blessed Shrine of Beaupré. Here, pilgrims have often felt some of the fruits of your goodness, power, and intercession.

Like every true pilgrim, I also have favours to ask of you. I know that you will be
as good to me as you have been, in the past, to thousands of others who have come to implore you in this Shrine.

Saint Anne, you know the grace of which I stand most in need at the present moment, the special favour for which I have undertaken this pilgrimage. Hear my prayer.

I entrust to your care, all of my material and spiritual needs. I commend my family, my country, the Church, and the whole world to you.

Keep me faithful to Christ and His Church and one day, escort me into the Father’s Eternal Home.


Amen.
