Today we celebrate the Assumption of Mary into Heaven, a big holiday here in Pag, a hundreds year old tradition.
The statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary is carried from the Old Town to "new" Pag. The votive procession first began in 1885. A cholera epidemic hit Pag in 1852 and raged in intervals and, to prevent contagion, all graves were relocated from the town and its churches.

On the Feast of the Assumption in 1885, the people of Pag gathered spontaneously in the Old Town, around Mary’s statue, praying for salvation from the cruel disease. They carried the statue to Pag’s parish church. The last cholera victims were buried on 16 August of the same year, the Feast of St. Roch.

It was then that the people of Pag vowed to bring Mary’s statue to Pag every year and put it on display in the Church for 22 days, until the Nativity of Mary, enabling the congregation to thank her and pray for salvation, health, peace, and love.

Join us tonight, enjoy the tradition and the celebration!
