The doctrine also states that Mary had no stain of original sin and led a sinless life. Special masses held on 8 December, which is the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, expound these themes.

In Victoria, the capital city of Seychelles, many attend Immaculate Conception Cathedral on 8 December. This cathedral was built back in 1874 and is a marvel of French colonial architecture.
