Christmas Mass Times 2021

When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let us go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has made known to us…”


We welcome you to celebrate Christmas at Knock Shrine, a special time to gather and give thanks to God for all that is good in our lives. During this sacred time, when we remember the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ, we are reminded of that beautiful scene of the Nativity in all its simplicity.

Love, togetherness, and rejoicing are the things He wants from us. Slow down and take in what is around you. Attend Mass and rediscover the glory of the season!


It is not necessary to book in order to attend Mass at Knock Shrine over the Christmas period.
