The National Shrine of St. Anne's Catholic Church

Serving in St. Anne, IL



Liturgy for the 14th Sunday

in Ordinary Time - July 5, 2020

Celebrated at the National Shrine of St. Anne - St. Anne, IL


Fr. Pete Jankowski has been celebrating all Masses on behalf of the parishioners of St. Patrick's Church (Momence), St. Anne's Church (St. Anne) and Sacred Heart Mission (Hopkins Park) who are not able to church. We now are honored to celebrate OUTDOOR services at our parishes (weather permitting) at the regular weekend Mass times, INDOORS otherwise. Feel free to invite others to join our Masses if they are not able to join their own parish communities – we will never get large enough to worry about too many people that come and join us (and what a wonderful dilemma it would be if they did!). All we ask you to do is bring your own chairs to the Masses, bring your own masks and observe social distancing. For Social Distancing Guidelines, Please CLICK HERE (English Instructions) or CLICK HERE (Spanish Instructions).


Please continue to support our local parishes – we need your support to continue spreading God’s mercy during these difficult times.


To support the mission of St. Patrick's Church, please contact us at (815) 472-2864 or write us at 119 North Market Street - Momence, IL 60954.


To support the mission of St. Anne's Church, please contact us at (815) 427-8265 or write us at PO Box 470 - St. Anne, IL 60964.

St. Anne's Catholic Church was founded by Father Charles Chiniquy, who travelled to Illinois in 1852 and helped found the parish for which the city was named. He was accompanied by most of his French-Canadian parishioners from nearby Bourbonnais, IL. The current structure was built in 1872 to replace Father Chiniquy's original log church.

The stone structure is of Gothic design and topped with a bell tower. The church survived a fire in 1893.

The church contains a national shrine to St. Anne, established in 1888 to provide parishioners with a counterpart of the shrine at Beaupré, Canada. The shrine is now known throughout the Middle West and several miraculous cures have been reported. St. Anne's Day, July 26th, brings hundreds of visitors to venerate the relic of la bonne Sainte Anne.
