Feast of St. Peter in Chains

 The patronal feast of the cathedral. This feast recalls St. Peter's freeing from prison by an angel as told in Acts 12:3-19. This event is depicted in the large mosaic that dominates the cathedral.

 
The feast of Saint Peter in Chains, August 1, was once known as "Lammas Day" from the Old English "hlafmaesse" for Loaf Mass. The name was applied to the feast becasue it was observed as an early harvest thanksgiving and loaves made from the new corn were blessed and distributed at the Masses.
