Family Focus Week 2018
Family Focus Week at Knock Shrine: 16 to 21 July 2018
With the impending visit of Pope Francis to Ireland and Knock Shrine, our Family Focus Week this year has a clear emphasis on the invitation Pope Francis gives to families, to live happy and contented lives, in his document ‘Amoris Laetitia – The Joy of Love’. Exploring how we can best understand and respond to its message, the week will include daily workshops at 12 noon and 8.30pm and opportunities for prayer with Mass at 3 pm and a Holy Hour at 7 pm. A children’s blessing ceremony will take place on Saturday as 12 noon for all children (0-12 years). A special family candle will be lit at the Shrine and in the Basilica during this week, as we continue to pray for all families, in advance of the World Meeting of Families meeting this August.
