The Old Church of St. Joachim and St. Anne is a former Roman Catholic parish under the authority of the Archdiocese of New York in Tottenville, Staten Island, New York City.

The church was located on the north side Hylan Boulevard, between Sharrott and Richard Aves. It was originally built around 1882. “The towers and main façade of this imposing edifice, destroyed by fire, were saved; the badly damaged nave was demolished and replaced by a modern substitute.”

As of 1977, it housed the Mount Loretto Home for Children.[1][2]
