As another pilgrimage season begins at Knock Shrine, Fr Richard would welcome more volunteers to assist pilgrims who may need particular care or information. Duty times would be arranged to facilitate the family and personal commitments of all volunteers.
A meeting for all new and experienced volunteers will take place in St Mary’s Hostel (the convent) on Thursday the 18th of May at 8pm.
All interested in joining are welcome and should contact Monica Morley in advance on 094-9388100

Here’s what some of last year’s Camp Volunteers said…
“I benefited greatly from the Camp. I gained friends for life and skills that I can use time and time again. I also gained so much more confidence.”
“It was such a rewarding experience which enhanced and deepened my own faith and for this I am very grateful.”
“Two words: Life Changing”
“It has helped me to have a more positive outlook on life and to find the better in everyone I come into contact with.”
“It was an amazing and memorable experience. The ethos and spirit of the Camp was unbelievable.”
