The Feast of St Anne in Provence 2019

Our good friends of the Fraternity of St Joseph the Guardian in La-Londe-Les-Maures, France, also have the pastoral charge of the church of St Anne on the beautiful little island of Porquerolles. Each year for the church’s patronal feast, the principal Mass is followed by a procession with a statue of St Anne, and a blessing of the boats in the waters of the island’s port. Here are some great photos taken during the recent celebration; you can see the full set on their Facebook page.
