'Cairde Mhuire' - Our Lady's volunteers

The Knock Shrine Society was established in 1935 to serve the needs of sick and infirm pilgrims who visit Knock Shrine. The members of the Society have played a central role at Knock Shrine for over 80 years.

Our dedicated members

The members of Cairde Mhuire are committed to serving at the Shrine, one day per month during the pilgrimage season.

This opportunity is open to all men and women over 18 who wish to share their time and be of service to the Sick and Infirm and to assist in the Eucharistic and Liturgical services.
