  3. What is surprising about the statue of Saint Anne is that it is an exact replica, even to the angels at the base, of the statue at the shrine of St. Anne de Beaupre. Do you have any idea what the connection is?

  4. I have no idea regarding the statue, since I've been unable to come up with any information on the mausoleum.
