Parish Church & Shrine open Friday 18 May

Friends of Knock Shrine will be delighted to learn that Knock Parish Church and Apparition Chapel are set to reopen this Friday 18 May following extensive refurbishment.

The first public Mass will take place the following day, Saturday 19th at 9am and all parishioners and friends are invited to attend this first special celebration with Fr Richard Gibbons. This will be the first Mass to be celebrated in the Church since its closure last October.

The Parish Church has a special place in the hearts of many. Its prayerful, peaceful atmosphere makes it not only the oldest, but also one of the most important places in Knock for parishioners and pilgrims alike. It is here that the 15 witnesses worshipped at Mass and where many of the early pilgrims to Knock gathered in throngs to pray and to see the sacred site of the Apparition.

All of the beautiful historic features, windows, stained glass windows and altars have been professionally cleaned and restored, including the Stations of the Cross which have been in place since circa 1900. New seating. lighting and floors have been added to both chapels.

The renovation also included technological upgrades to allow for live streaming of Masses each day from both the Parish Church and the Apparition Chapel.

Fr Richard would like to say a special thank you to the parishioners of Knock and visitors for their patience and understanding over the past few months. We look forward to welcoming friends into the newly renovated churches and hope that people will be able to join us for that fist special Mass on Saturday.
