On Monday, 26 July 2020, we celebrate Saint Anne’s Feast Day in the mining village of Hütten. At 10 a.m., we honour the saint in a Holy Mass in Saint Anne’s Chapel next to the Mining and Gothic Museum Leogang. After the mass, there are guided tours in the museum, which hosts a Saint Anne collection.
All over Europe, Saint Anne is revered as the patron saint of silver mines and as a major patron saint of miners. As mother of Mary and grandmother of Jesus, Anne is the origin of the salvation history. Having given birth to Jesus, Mary is associated with gold, and Anne with silver.
