Knock to New York Pilgrimage in May

front-view6-night trip departing Monday 8th May from Ireland West Airport Knock and returning on Sunday 14th May. The trip includes return Aer Lingus private charter flights from Knock to New York, room-only accommodation in NH New York Madison Towers, Manhattan and  coach transfers to and from airport.

The year 2017 will be a remarkable year for the people of Knock and the Irish diaspora in New York as plans are underway at Knock Shrine to lead a group out from Ireland West Airport to New York next May.

For the last two years, Knock Shrine and Ireland West Airport has welcomed pilgrimages in from New York and Boston and will now have the privilege of bringing the people of Knock and the West and North West of Ireland across the waters for a special and historically unique 6-day trip which will be led by Fr. Richard Gibbons, P.P., Rector, Knock Shrine. The primary purpose of the visit is to have the remains of John Curry, the youngest person to witness the Knock Apparition of 1879, re-interred from the current location at Pine Lawn Cemetery, Long Island to St. Patrick’s old Cathedral, New York.

John Curry was just five years old when he, along with fourteen others witnessed a miraculous phenomenon at the gable wall of the Parish Church. Little did he know at that time what life would bring his way, however he like many others at the time left Ireland for New York where he remained until his death in 1943.

The remains of John Curry will be brought to old St. Patricks Cathedral, Manhattan on Saturday 13th May where a special requiem Mass will be celebrated. It is a great honour bestowed by the Archbishop of New York for Knock Shrine and for John Curry’s family to have his remains transferred to the historic centre of the Irish.

If you would like to take part in this once in a lifetime trip, contact Joe Walsh Tours to Book Your Place.
