In the Archcathedral Basilica  – Solemnity

The current Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary Metropolitan Basilica was erected between 1900-1905 in the Neo-Gothic style of the Vistula-Baltic region, and was built next to the parish church of the first half of the 17th century. It was consecrated on 30 May 1931 by Archbishop Romuald Jałbrzykowski, metropolitan bishop of Vilnius. From 1945 it functioned as the pro-cathedral. In 1985 Pope John Paul II gave it the title of minor basilica and on 5 June 1991, founding the Diocese of Białystok, made it cathedral.
