Love this church! The architecture is amazing. You have that feeling that you are in the presence of our Lord. Wonderful congregation, they are all welcoming, friendly and the choir is awesome.

This church is very old and beautiful.It is made of stone and the atmosphere is exceptional. It is a French speaking as well as an English speaking church. The people are very friendly. This is a Catholic Church.

I have had the pleasure of going to St Anne for 35 years as I attended the grammer school when it was open. I had been an alter server for many years here as well. The church is beautiful the stone work on the exterior makes it look like it should have been built in Europe 1000 years ago. The... More

St. Anne's is not just a church, but classified as an actual Shrine. There is a relic of St. Anne (the grandmother of Jesus) on site. For this reason, the highway was actually built around it. The restoration of the inside has begun, and is beautiful. It is a wonderful venue for a wedding, but there are also Roman Catholic... More

I came here for a wedding. The church was magnificent, a real treasure. It was like taking a trip back in time to a more traditional church. It was a beautiful place for a wedding, with a very long aisle and a large altar.

We had to go to a wedding there a few months ago. It is a beautiful church and the architecture is really awesome. It was ornate and so nicely decorated with flowers and the church itself. It was beautiful and if you ever go near there, stop in and take a look yourself.
