Photographer's Note

This church was founded by Father F.P Sorin, a French Roman Catholic missionary in 1888. In the 1900s, word started to get round that vows had been fulfilled and miracles performed which were attributed to St. Anne.

This led to the Feast Day of St. Anne becoming the occasion for a major annual pilgrimage in which thousands take part from all over the region and even from as far away as Australia. Today, the Feast of St. Anne held towards the end of July is a nine-day affair, the climax of which comes at the end with a spectacular candlelight procession.

There is now a larger new St. Annes Church some two km away, but for the festival the old church remains the focal point.

Both churches are located in town called Bukit Mertajam at mainland Penang. Please visit this church if you do drop by Malaysia.
