All-Night Vigil 2022: Wednesday 7th December

O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee.


We are delighted to announce the programme for this years All-Night Vigil at Knock Shrine.

The All-Night Vigil is a long-standing tradition at Knock Shrine. Beginning on the eve of the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, we invite you to join with us once again for this special night of prayer. This is a significant feast day, when we celebrate Mary’s Immaculate Conception; the fact that Mary was, from the very first moment of her existence, without sin, and chosen to be the Mother of Jesus.
