15 August, the Feast of the Patron Saint of the Cathedral of Antwerp


In Antwerp, we celebrate Mother’s Day on the feast of the cathedral’s patron saint.


On 15 August, everything revolves around the Mother of the Church during the Feast of the Assumption of the Virgin.


The procession on the eve of this feast and the devotion to the centuries-old statue of the Virgin Mary attest to people’s desire to have a universal mother who listens and connects us to God.
