Knock ShrineEveryone is most welcome to join our Annual Pilgimage to Knock Shrine in conjunction with the Dublin Adoration Pilgrimage on Sunday 24th April.

Our pilgrimage will coincide with the National Crusade of Prayer for vocations which will be launched by the Most. Rev. Kevin Doran, Bishop of Elphin so it will be a fantastic opportunity to join in prayer with so many others across the country as we honour Our Lady of Knock and seek her prayers and intercession.

The cost of the day is €35 which includes a four course lunch in the Convent and the coach fare – a special price of €20 for the day is available for under 18’s and this also includes the coach fare and four course lunch.

The Coach will depart from St Mary’s Church, Sandyford, at 7.45am sharp, and will depart from Knock at 5.00pm.
There will be a short coffee break on the journey to Knock and on the return journey.
Lunch will be at 12.15pm.
A spiritual programme will be available.
Booking with payment can be made at the Parish Office, St Mary’s Church, from 14th March to 18th April.
We look forward to seeing you all.

In this of Mercy Pope Francis is encouraging all Catholics to, where possible, go on a pilgrimage
“The practice of pilgrimage has a special place in the Holy Year, because it represents the journey each of us makes in this life.”
