Friends of the Basilica

We have been blessed by the continued generosity of pilgrims and friends of Knock Shrine.

If you would like to support our work, you may wish to consider becoming a Friend, Benefactor or Patron of the Basilica of Our Lady of Knock. 

All gifts, at all levels, make a difference and are greatly appreciated.

Below are some examples of different gift levels for Friends, Benefactors and Patrons of the Basilica.


Honouring our Donors

In recognition of your commitment and support, we would like to honour our Friends, Benefactors and Patrons by memorialising your name, your family name, or the name of a loved one, within the Basilica of Our Lady of Knock.

Of course, some donors prefer to make their gift anonymously and receive no recognition. We will be sure to speak to you and confirm your wishes on this matter.
