The Youth Ministry team in Knock seeks to proclaim the Kingdom of God and to make known the Good News of Christ more fully through worship, service and witness. They aim to give the young people who visit Knock Shrine a personal experience of Jesus through the Sacraments. They do this by celebrating the Sacraments, preaching the Gospel, and by giving witness to the living presence of Jesus in our world.

The Youth Ministry in the Shrine runs programmes throughout the year, School Retreats throughout the academic year and a Summer programme called The HUB from June-August.
