We welcome you to join us for our Diocesan Knock in person/Virtual Pilgrimage on Sunday 11th June 2023. The Ceremonies will be streamed live on the Shrine website www.knockshrine.ie and on Knock Shrine Facebook page. The programme will commence with the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick at 2.30pm and Mass will be celebrated at 3pm by Bishop Donal McKeown. Apostolic Administrator of the Diocese of Down and Connor. Bishop McKeown will also deliver the Homily. The Mass will be followed by the Recitation of the Rosary
You are invited to place a Petition by visiting the Knock Shrine website and all the Petitions will be placed before the Altar during the Mass. You may also request that a candle be lit for your intentions, or you may do so in person.
Many regular visitors to Knock with our Diocesan Pilgrimage have expressed a reluctance to travel this year via coaches, therefore, unfortunately, there are a limited number of Parish Groups attending this year. we do hope that we can build this up again in the years to come.
We encourage as many of you as possible to participate and pray that next year we may gather, as a Diocese, in larger numbers in person at our National Shrine of Our Lady of Knock.
With Every Blessing
Father Vincent Cushnahan
(Diocesan Knock Pilgrimage Director).
