The miraculous icon is kept in the main temple of the skete of St. Anne. In the 18th century, monk Dionysius created a handwritten prayer for it, which is now sung before the icon on Sundays after Divine Liturgy. A prayer is also said daily before the icon by the administrator of the skete.
It is believed that the icon of St. Anne helps heal from infertility. After the sacrament of confession, the couple offer daily prayers to the saint. In honor of the Virgin Mary's parents, in such families the boys born are usually named Joachim, and the girls are named Anne.
