SMA Virtual Pilgrimage May 22nd 2021

The Society of African Missions ( SMA) host their virtual pilgrimage to Knock Shrine on Saturday, May 22nd 2021. Mass will be streamed live from Knock Basilica at 3pm, with Rosary at 2.30pm.


The Society of African Missions is an international community of Catholic missionaries who serve the people of Africa and people of African descent around the world. SMA stands for our official name: Society of African Missions. People often ask, then why SMA and not SAM? The initials refer to the name in Latin: Societas Missionum ad Afros.  SMA was founded at Lyons (France) in 1856 by Mgr Melchior de Marion Brésillac.

Live stream on the Knock Shrine website from 2.30pm.
