Saint Anne and Saint Joachim – Parents of Mary
Saint Anne and Saint Joachim are not mentioned anywhere in the canonical Gospels. They are first mentioned in the Protoevangelium of James (written ca. 150), one of the New Testament Apocrypha. This plaque depicts Saint Anne using the Hebrew Scriptures to teach Mary how to read, while Saint Joachim stands approvingly in the background. This plaque is an excellent gift for the feast day of Saint Anne on July 26th, for a birthday, and especially for confirmation.
