Saint Anne is the Patron Saint of the Mi’kmaq.
She is the Mother of Mary and Grandmother of Jesus, valued as an elder for her wisdom and strength.
Each year St. Anne is venerated in an annual mission near the Feast Day of July 26.
This year’s mission has been cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Chapel Island Mission was the longest continous mission in Canada, possibly in North America.
The first Mass on the tiny island of Mniku, (a few minutes by boat from Potlotek) was offered on a boulder by Fr. Pierre Maillard in 1742. The island of Mniku was declared a National Historic Site in 2005.
