St. Anne, also known as Ann or Anna, was born in Bethlehem and married Joachim from Nazareth in Galilee. She was the mother of the Virgin Mary and grandmother of Jesus Christ. The life of Saint Ann and her connection as holy mother of Mary and grandmother of Jesus was very popular with early Christians. In the year 550, a church was built in honor of St. Anne in Jerusalem. It is believed to be near where Anne, Joachim, and Mary lived.
