The new website of the Minor Basilica of St Anne (www.minorbasilicastannebm. com) was launched on July 1. In this website, St Anne’s complete feast schedule is available. The theme for this year is Sent with Joy to Heal. The Adoration and Benediction begins at 3.00 pm, followed by Novena Masses from 4.30 pm until 9.00 pm in 4 languages. All will be streamed live throughout the 10 days from this website.

Among the many initiatives taken to continue the mission to love and serve others in creative, inclusive and bridge-building ways throughout the 10 days of the Feast of St. Anne this year are:

1. Live-streaming of Adoration and Benediction each day for an hour.

2. The Novena and Masses in Bahasa, Tamil, English and Mandarin will also be live-streamed each day.

3. The original statue of St Anne which is in the shrine, can be viewed through this website.

4. Pilgrims and devotees who wish to light a candle, offer garlands and flowers, write petitions and make prayer requests to St Anne may also do so through this digital avenue.

5. Priests and the Bishop are just a call away, every day during the Feast of St Anne, should there be a need to speak to a priest for prayers and blessings.

6. The Counselling Team will also be readily available for those who need a listening ear to share their struggles and doubts.

7. Pilgrims and devotees are invited to share, in all languages, their experiences and testimonies through the intercession of St Anne through this website so that it may be a source of inspiration for others.

The Shrine is now open for viewing. However, it will be closed throughout the 10 days for the safety of all devotees. Only the working team will be in the church compound to ensure that the live streaming is available for all who are watching from their homes, wherever they may be.

“St Anne is always ready to pray for you, you can now watch the novena Masses with your family in the  comfort of your own home, and continue to pray with faith and hope,” said Bishop Sebastian Francis.
