St. Anne's Roman Catholic Church
- 621 Sicard Street, San Diego, CA 92113 | Directions
A statue of the Infant Christ wearing a king’s crown stands to the left of the altar at St. Anne’s. Today, the statue also wears a purple robe trimmed with pearls over his usual finery because purple is a penitential color, and today is Ash Wednesday, the first day of the penitential season of Lent. When Father Dennis Gordon ascends to the altar, he is draped in a heavy purple cope. Latin words surround the gold cross on his mantel: Lux, Pax, Vita, Via — light, peace, life, way. Almost the entire Mass will be in Latin; translation books are available at the church entrance. [+more]
