School Retreats at Knock Shrine

Our age-appropriate day retreats offer children and young people the opportunity to explore their relationship with God in the unique, peaceful atmosphere at Knock Shrine

School Retreats
(September – June)


Thousands of students have attended a school retreat here in Knock Shrine. The aim of the retreat is to bring young people to Knock and give them a positive experience of Knock, a powerful experience of God and enable them to realise the power the church and the Sacraments have to transform their lives.

All of our retreats are given in a laid back friendly environment helping the students to take that much needed ‘time out’ to explore their relationship with God.

We tailor each day to suit the needs of the teachers and students. Specific retreats are available for First Holy Communion and Confirmation preparation groups.
