New series of spring/summer faith events

Knock Shrine launched a new series of faith events for the spring/summer season. The new programme includes workshops, seminars, talks and retreats, exploring a diverse range of faith topics – from Pope Francis’ writings on the environment to women’s spirituality, prayer and reflection, Christian decision making, and the 1916 Rising.

Knock Shrine’s first series of faith renewal events was launched last autumn and proved very popular.
