Annual Diocesan Pilgrimage to Knock

On Sunday May 30th the Diocese will celebrate the Annual Diocesan Pilgrimage to Knock.  Sadly for the second year running it will not be possible for us all to travel.  However it will be broadcast from the Shrine at 3pm with Bishop Michael Chief-celebrant and Preacher.

By way of preparation for it in this year of St Joseph an introduction by the Archbishop will be broadcast on the Diocesan website on the previous Tuesday (May 25th) followed on subsequent days with a reflection on St Joseph and Decade of the Rosary from 5 of the Titular Churches of St Joseph throughout the Diocese. 

The program is as follows:

Wednesday 26th May                 The Annunciation              St Joseph’s, Caledon  Fr Cathal Deveney 

Thursday   27th May                The Visitation          St Joseph’s, Mell  Fr John McAlinden

Friday       28th May         The Nativity                                        St Joseph’s, Tynan           Fr Sean Moore

I am grateful to the clergy and their people who are facilitating this preparation for the Pilgrimage in this year of St Joseph. 

I would appreciate it if you kindly post this in your Sunday Bulletins, Facebook pages etc.

May the prayers of Our Lady of Knock accompanied by her spouse St Joseph and with St John the Beloved Disciple keep you safe and well in these times.
