St Anne’s feast day is celebrated annually in Malaysia in mainly 2 locations, Bukit Mertajam (Penang) and Port Klang (Selangor). Thousands of pilgrims attend the 9-day novena which ends with a candle-light procession on the feast day to pay homage and give thanks to St Anne, the grandmother of Jesus.
As per previous years, I attended the novena & feast day celebration with my family in Port Klang this year. The atmosphere was truly amazing and the crowd was much larger than before. A truly spiritual experience for me indeed, here are some shots of the day.
