Saint Anna was the Mother of Mary, the Mother of God. The birth of Mary was miraculous as Anna was beyond normal childbearing age. She and her husband Joachim promised to have Mary brought up in the Temple and at 3 years of age they dedicated her to the Temple. For the next seven years, Anna and Joachim visited Mary often until they reposed, leaving her an orphan. The Orthodox Church commemorates the dormition of St. Anna on 25th of July. Both of the Virgin Mary's parents are commemorated together on the 9th of September.
