Good day and welcome to the Ste-Anne du Bocage Shrine
Due to the circumstances of Covid-19, we are unable to open the Ste-Anne heritage chapel to the public this year.
You can however purchase candles and piety items at our gift shop located in front of the chapel. The gift shop’s hours of operation are from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. from Wednesday to Sunday.
You can also obtain water at the source without any danger. The water is drinkable.
Thank you for your interest in our shrine. We would also like to thank you for your visit.
Our paths are open for your satisfaction, whether it is for a walk, to recite the rosary along the path of the rosary, to pray at the grotto or simply to take a moment to meditate. There are also areas set up for personal prayer.
We do however ask that you comply with provincial government and New Brunswick Department of Health guidelines. We have taken all possible measures to assure your well-being. Physical distancing must be maintained throughout the shrine as a precautionary measure due to the Covid-19.
We are sorry, but we are unable to open the washrooms for safety and hygiene reasons. Furthermore, please note that we will be doing some major work on the site this summer. We apologize in advance for any inconveniences this may cause.
Site security is important to us. Improvements will also be made in the coming weeks. On this note, we reiterate our commitment to offer you a safe and respectful place.
Thank you!
The members of the Shrine’s Management Council
