Sharing in the Joy of Knock

A new Processional statue of Our Lady was unveiled during the mass on 21st August. Just as Mary came in the rain in 1879  so the arrival of the new processional statue was celebrated on a rainy day in 2019.

Weather was not a deterrent and thousands of pilgrims have attended the Novena during the week.

In the evening, at the time of the original apparition 140 years ago,parishioners of Knock re-enacted the scene as they played the role of the 15 visionaries.

At 8 p.m. the “visionaries” with their Parish Priest, turned to pray at the sight of the apparition.
