Pilgrimage Season – Programme of Ceremonies

Pilgrimage Season 2022
Sunday 1st May – Sunday 9th October

 

A place of pilgrimage…
Whether you are coming to Knock as a seasoned pilgrim or as a stranger, you will find a peaceful place of welcome with an abundance of services to enrich you. The upcoming season at Knock Shrine will be particularly special as we will return to offering daily public devotions and a full reopening of services.

Since the first organised pilgrimage came to Knock in 1880, the Shrine has welcomed pilgrims from all over the world to this sacred place.

Pilgrimage Masses take place at Knock Basilica each weekend throughout the season. Public Ceremonies take place daily, including Anointing of the Sick, Confessions, Stations of the Cross. Eucharistic Adoration takes place daily in the newly refurbished Blessed Sacrament Chapel. On Sunday’s, Mass is offered followed by Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament, Rosary Procession to the Shrine and Blessing of religious objects.

 

You can see the full programme including Mass times below. Please note, the following times are valid from Sunday 1st May.
Daily Mass times prior to this date are available here.
