St Anne Celebration 2009.
The Shrine of St. Anne (old church where the St Anne Festival is held)
new chuch ( beside the old church)
17th July- 25th July was the period of St Anne's annual novena and feast day celebration.
Among the nine days celebration, I've participated the evening mass 3 times.
Last Saturday, was the last day of feast day celebration.
It is an annual event thingy for my family and I. We will make the trip to St Anne Church at Bukit Mertajam every year.
As usual, I went there to pray, attending the English Mass at evening with my family on last Saturday.
We reached there earlier to avoid the traffic jam and crowd.
In fact, there was a HUGE CROWD gathering around the church compound.
Every year, thousands will travel from all over to this tiny church in Bukit Mertajam to pray for blessings and petition for favours.
You can see lots of tourists who come from outstation or other countries and the non christians too.
25th July 2009 ( the last day of the celebration)
