About the Event

Grandparents, bring your grandkids out to the little country village of St Anne, in rural Illinois! 

Since 1886, when the first band of pilgrims came from Notre Dame de Chicago by train, thousands have attended. 

The the annual small-town celebration echos those held in Canada and in France that also honor Le Bonne Sainte Anne, the grandmother of Jesus. The festivities include Mass, a colorful outdoor Procession with the relics of the Saint, children's games, a variety of food trucks, local craft vendors, flower vendors, and more.  

This original Shrine of St Anne brought the international travels of the famous relic of St Anne (Jesus' grandmother) to a permanent, peaceful place of veneration - a place for reflection, healing and joy. Some have left behind crutches or wheel chairs, others simply, thier worries and cares.  Join us on July 26th!

Meet at: Our Lady of Good Counsel, Aurora, IL 60506

School Bus Transportation provided; lunch on your own.

Please dress comfortably yet respectfully for indoor and outdoor activities on this special trip.
