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!
"A great sign
appeared in heaven:
a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head"
