10. Chapel of St. Anne

St. Martin DePorres
Blessed Martin Wu
The Chapel of St. Anne, mother of Mary and grandmother of Jesus, honors several ethnic groups. In the first window (left) is St. Martin DePorres, a Peruvian Dominican of African ancestry. St. Joachim was the grandfather of Jesus. Center is the Spanish St. Teresa of Avila, a Carmelite mystic, writer, and religious reformer. On the right is the Chinese martyr Blessed Martin Wu (1817-1862), honoring Asian Americans. Martin was a catechist from a farming family that had been Catholic for generations. Local authorities imprisoned, tortured, and killed him and many other Christians in a widespread persecution.
