St. Anne's Mission

12004 Highway 4


The Mi’kmaw of Potlotek First Nation have been welcoming out-of-towners, family, and friends since before 1742. It was during 1742 that missionary priest Father Maillard said his first mass on Mniku. Mniku is a spiritual island adjacent to Potlotek First Nation. To gain access to the island, you must travel by boat. During the mission, boaters offer transportation to the island on a donation basis. More than 3000 people attend the four-day mission of St. Anne. The pilgramage to Mniku honours our patron saint, Saint Anne. Join us and celebrate this time honoured event from July 25th-July 29th.
