Pilgrimage Organisers

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

Pilgrimage Services

The pilgrimage season takes place from the last Sunday in April until the second Sunday in October each year and the team at Knock Shrine are always on hand to facilitate pilgrimage organisers in making their day as special as possible.

We welcome pilgrimage groups to join us throughout the pilgrimage season, from the last Sunday in April until the second Sunday in October. We  will facilitate you with organising all aspects of your day at Knock Shrine.

Visiting Choirs are welcome to participate in the liturgy  at Knock Basilica at 3pm Mass on the day of your pilgrimage. Our musical director will be delighted to assist with the choice of hymns and sacred music. Facilities for sick and infirm pilgrims are available at St. John’s Rest & Care Centre.

Our dedicated pilgrimage organiser can be contacted by telephone at (094) 93 88100 or by email at pilgrimages@knockshrine.ie for more details.
