The Novena is a national and international event that takes place every year from the 14 – 22 August and attracts as many as 150,000 pilgrims. It is a time of prayer that offers pilgrims a variety of guest speakers who reflect upon faith and contemporary society. It is with great disappointment that we have to postpone the highlight of the annual pilgrimage season at Knock Shrine. We take this opportunity to encourage the people of Ireland and beyond to pray the Novena prayer in their own homes and parishes for the month of August so that we may be united in prayer. The Novena prayer can be found on here on the website. The proposed theme for this year’s Novena was ‘Faith in changing times’. We continue to pray with you and for you as we look forward with faith and hope to brighter days.  We thank everyone for their patience and cooperation. May Our Lady of Knock keep you all safe.
