On 15 August, the streets of the Liege district, Outremeuse, are undergoing a procession with a black Madonna figure. It goes from the church st. Nicholas. On the same day there is also a festival in which the thousands of participants, dressed in various dresses of the period, pass through the streets. The main attraction of this festival is the huge form of Tchantches and Nanesse. Although both ceremonies, church and secular, take place on the same date, they do not collide, but on the contrary, both have become one of the most important events in Liege. On a few days of street festivities, which begin the processions of 15 August, approximately 300 thousands of tourists from all over the world take part annually.
Liege is also a city in which we have quite a lot of Polonia. These are the descendants of our countrymen who emigrated here from Poland before and after the Second World War. They celebrate the memory of Poland to this day, meeting at Holy Mass on the occasion of the feast of 15 August. Celebrations of this Polish festival take place in the church on Cointe. The priest is presided over by Oblat Heller, who has been a pastor of Poles in Liege for twenty years. Always after the Mass, the Polonia flowers at the monument dedicated to Polish soldiers killed on the fronts of World War II.
