All-Ireland Rosary Rally

Saturday 3rd June, from 1pm

The All Ireland Rosary Rally will take place in Knock on Saturday June 3rd.  The Rally has been an annual event in Knock for over thirty years.

It was inspired by the Rosary Priest Venerable Fr Patrick Peyton who was famous for holding Rosary Rallies all over the world attended by over twenty-five million people.

Bishop Oliver Doeme will speak at the rally this year in the Basilica at 1pm.  His Diocese in Nigeria has been under attack by the Boko Haram Terrorists since 2009, and thousands have died and hundreds of thousands have been displaced. He will speak about the power of prayer, and the Rosary, in particular, in helping his people in their great need.

There will also be the Stations of the Cross and a Rosary Procession, and a concelebrated Mass, with anointing of the sick. Archbishop Eamon Martin will be the Main Celebrant.  From 9am there will also be an opportunity to meet different apostolates from all over the Island of Ireland in St John’s Centre including Totus Tuus Magazine, Radio Maria, The Fr Willie Doyle Association, St Martin’s Apostolate, Mother’s Prayers, Catechism of the Catholic Church Adult Studies, World Apostolate of Fatima, Children’s Rosary, and the Fr Patrick Peyton Centre.
