The church village of Mariahout, whose founding date is 15 August 1932, has always paid attention to this special day since that year. The Roman Catholic Church celebrates the feast of the Assumption of Mary on this day. Previously, the Assumption was celebrated as a Sunday. In neighbouring countries, Germany and Belgium, this is still the case. 

The history of the relatively young Mariahout has several peculiarities that are mainly related to the church. The founder of the village, the construction pastor Jacobus van Eijndhoven (1898-1981), had many plans in 1932 of which the results can still be seen in Mariahout, such as: the Our Lady of Lourdes Church, the Lourdes Grotto, the Procession Park, the Open Air Theatre, the convent of the sisters and the Bernadette primary school. The legacy of this enterprising priest is centrally located in the village and is often referred to as the 'Green Heart' of Mariahout.

On Monday 15 August at 20.00 hours, a special Marian celebration will start in the church of Mariahout, during which there will be much singing and texts and songs in the theme of Maria. This will be followed by a light procession through 'The Green Heart' and the concluding prayer at Mary's in the Lourdes grotto. Candles for the procession are available at the back of the church. In bad weather, the celebration will take place in the church. Afterwards, there will be coffee or tea for everyone on the church square.
