November brings an invitation to reflect on love and loss as we remember our loves ones and times of letting go.
This retreat offers time to meet and be with others, sharing a faith journey and pilgrimage in and through the heart of the Celtic Christian tradition. Resting in the arms of God guiding us towards a time of change, we will explore the call to listen through scripture, music, reflection and prayer.
Retreat fee: €30

We are delighted to announce the programme for this years All-Night Vigil at Knock Shrine.
The All-Night Vigil is a long-standing tradition at Knock Shrine, falling on the date of the Feast of the Immaculate Conception and we invite you to join with us once again for this night of prayer. This is a significant feast day, when we celebrate Mary’s Immaculate Conception; the fact that Mary was, from the very first moment of her existence, without sin, and chosen to be the Mother of Jesus.
The Vigil begins with Confessions from 10pm until Midnight on the night of Wednesday 7th December. The Vigil will continue in the Basilica from Midnight with Rosary, Holy Hour, Reflections and Private Prayer, concluding with Mass at 4am.
This is always a very special night when we come together to honour the Feast of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
The full programme details will be available in due course. The Vigil will be live-streamed online on the Knock Shrine website and facebook page.
Join us as we travel through Advent; a time of preparation and waiting for the birth of the Christ child.
Together, we will go on a scriptural journey through the themes of Advent, relating them to everyday experience.
Each reflection will take place during mass at 7.30pm in the Parish Church, Knock Shrine. All are welcome to attend.
