Each year, on the Sunday nearest to the feast of the Assumption of Our Lady (August 15), St Mary's hosts an Ecumenical Celebration, with Vespers, torchlight procession, fireworks and a barbecue.


Hundreds process through Butetown, filling the street with song and light, and then, in true Assumptiontide style, the sky is split with the colour and dazzle of fireworks.


It's always a joyful occasion!
