DOWN AND CONNOR KNOCK VIRTUAL PILGRIMAGE


We welcome you to join us for our Diocesan Knock Virtual Pilgrimage this afternoon, Sunday 13th June 2021.

The ceremonies will be streamed live on the shrine website www.knockshrine.ie and on Knock Shrine Facebook page. The programme will commence with Rosary at 2.30pm and Mass will be celebrated at 3pm by Fr. Richard Gibbons, Rector of the Shrine. Bishop Treanor will give a short message of welcome to the people of our Diocese by means of a video, which will be shown at 2.55pm.

You are invited to place a Petition by visiting the Knock Shrine Website and all the Petitions will be before the Altar during the Mass. You may also request that a candle be lit for your intentions.

We encourage as many of you as possible to participate and pray that next year we may gather, as a Diocese, in person again at our National Shrine of Our Lady of Knock.

THE SOLEMNITY OF THE SACRED HEART


The Solemnity of The Sacred Heart will be observed on June 11, 2021. Devotion to the Sacred Heart is one of the most widely practiced and well-known devotions, taking Jesus’ physical heart as the representation of his divine love for humanity. The devotion especially emphasizes the unmitigated love, compassion, and long-suffering of the heart of Christ towards humanity.
