Our School Namesake: St. Anne

Anne is known to us because she is the mother of Mary and grandmother of Jesus. Anne and her husband Joachim loved God and prayed for a child. It seemed as though God did not hear their prayers because years went by and a child never came. But they kept praying nonetheless.


When it seemed Anne was too old to have a child, God graced them with one. They called their special child Mary, a name which means "incense that rises up to God." Anne's daughter became the woman that all Jewish women longed to be, the mother of the Messiah.


Anne was proud of Jesus. As his grandmother, she often had the opportunities to hold him and play with him. He often came to her house to visit.


Anne, whose name means "full of grace," was a holy woman who kept praying. Saint Anne shows us the importance of prayer, gratitude, and perseverance.


Saint Anne's feast day is July 26.


Religious Education

All of the Schools in the Edmonton Catholic School District use a Religious Education Program that is prescribed by the Catholic Bishops of Ontario, Alberta, Saskatchewan, and the Northwest Territories. The program is called Growing in Faith, Growing in Christ. It offers students an overview of our Catholic faith as well as grade-specific themes.

Celebrations

St. Anne School is committed to acknowledging the various seasons during the liturgical year through celebrations held both at the school and at our parish, St. Matthew. We also take the time to rejoice during other special events. Join us in celebrating the opening and closing of the school year, Thanksgiving, Remembrance Day, Advent, Lent, Easter and in celebrating Mary.

Prayer

Students at St. Anne participate in many forms of daily prayer. Morning announcements include daily readings that follow the liturgical year and prayers written and read by our students. Students also pray in the classroom before meals and to end their day.
