On Thursday morning, August 15, 2013, St. Michael Chaldean Catholic Church celebrated the Feast of the Assumption of Our Lady. The Mass, which was celebrated by His Excellency, Mar Sarhad Yawsip Jammo, began at 9:00AM. The church was so filled with faithful that the other parishoners who came for the Mass spilled over into the hall, filling it to capacity. After the Mass, the congregation followed the Bishop out to the grotto where the statue of Our Lady was crowned as the people sang hymns. Everyone was then able to venerate a picture of Our Lady and spend time praying by the grotto.
