THE HISTORY OF ST ANN'S IN CORMAC

We have made PDF files of three books of historical significance for both the Pilgrimage and the Cormac area. The books are entitled A Journey of Faith, People & Places of Yesterday and The Story of Cormac.

Converting the books to digital media ensures that they will be preserved for the future - and for you to enjoy as well!

The Pilgrimage to St. Ann's

In 1937, bishop C.L. Nelligan, announced to Father J.N. George, his approval of a Shrine to St. Ann in Cormac, as it was centrally located in the diocese. On Tuesday, July 26, 1938, the Feast of St. Ann, the first Pilgrimage was held at St. Ann's, Cormac.

St Ann's Catholic Church

Father James McCormac was responsible for the building of the first church in Cormac in 1891. This location was chosen because it was the center through which most traffic flowed, and so named because of Father McCormac's deep devotion to St. Ann.
