“……. the little, nameless, unremembered acts of kindness and love” - William Wordsworth

Recognising our parish heroes

If you know someone who deserves recognition for the things they have done, we want to hear about it! We want to celebrate the kindness and generosity of ordinary people doing extraordinary things.

It’s amazing how one seemingly small act of kindness can make a dramatic impact on a person’s life. Many people have been helped and touched by acts of selfless generosity all over the country and beyond since the pandemic started last February. Knock Shrine wish to acknowledge and recognise  people who have contributed and are contributing to the life of their parish over the course of the pandemic.

If you know someone who deserves recognition for the things they have done, we want to hear about it! We want to celebrate the kindness and generosity of ordinary people doing extraordinary things.

Winners will receive a gift of appreciation from Knock Shrine, our National Marian Shrine and they will be acknowledged on the 19th of December 2020 at the “Carols by Candlelight” service in Knock Basilica.

In recognising those unsung heroes who continue to build faith in our parish communities in these challenging times, Knock Shrine invites applications from:
