La chapelle commmorative (Ste-Anne-de-Beaupr) a t rige sur le site du transept sud de lglise construite en 1676. Et tout a t fait avec les matriaux de cette mme glise : la pierre, le clocher, et tout ce quil y a lintrieur, soit la dcoration de la vote, la chaire (orne dune magnifique sculpture de Franois Baillarg), les bancs, la corniche et les colonnes. Les objets les plus prcieux qui y furent laisss pendant longtemps sont maintenant au Muse ainsi que les peintures et statues originales. Cette chapelle nen demeure pas moins un tmoin de 200 ans dhistoire, 200 ans de merveilles opres par la Bonne Sainte Anne.

The Memorial Chapel (Ste-Anne-de-Beaupr)was built on the site of the south transept of the third church (1676 - 1876). Many of the materials from this church were used to construct the Memorial Chapel: stones, the bell tower, and the entire interior decor, such as the vault, the celebrant's chair (decorated with the magnificent woodwork of sculptor Franois Baillarg), the pews, the cornice, and the columns. Many of these precious objects that were originally placed in this chapel are now found in the Museum of Saint Anne, where they are better protected from rough weather conditions. Even though the original statues and paintings have been replaced by copies, the Memorial Chapel still remains to this day a strong witness of 200 years of history, of 200 years of marvels performed by Good Saint Anne.
