We are inviting YOU to be part of Knock Shrine and volunteer for one or more weekends throughout the summer. This is a fun opportunity to meet new people, welcome pilgrims and help the people who visit Knock. The Volunteer @ Knock Shrine (VAKS) programme is for all people over 16 years old. It is an opportunity for you to serve the pilgrims at Knock Shrine. Over 1.4 million people visit Knock Shrine every year from home and abroad. It is a special place of prayer and pilgrimage.
You will need to attend two training days at Knock before you can volunteer, training includes the following:
Training will run on two Sundays in May (dates to be confirmed). Training is essential to take part in the VAKS programme. You can then choose weekends that you would be available to volunteer for. Training dates are compulsory to be part of this programme
The cost of the programme is €30. This includes food and accommodation for the weekend and a t-shirt.
