If you look beyond the thick fog found in the Sunset District in the middle of July, you’ll see countless people make their way to a massive church three times a day to be people of prayer and thanksgiving.
Yesterday was the launch of the annual novena to Good Saint Anne at Saint Anne of the Sunset Catholic Church.
Throughout the 106 years, countless people come to pray for countless intentions. Yet, I feel that it doesn’t necessarily become this grind of wish making and prayer granting. Rather, I get a sense that every time I go to her shrine and see countless people in prayer, lighting candles, I cannot help but feel a deep sense of solitude, peace, and reverence towards the Almighty God and guided with the prayers of Anne.
So if time permits and you have a coat, come by to this beloved tradition in San Francisco!
