Follow the Knock Novena

The Annual Novena to our Lady of Knock has been postponed until later this year because of the Corona virus. To help us celebrate the feast day and honour our Lady of Knock, Queen of Ireland, and I invite you to pray the Novena privately in your own homes & churches, with family & friends. So, starting Saturday August 14th and ending Sunday August 22nd I invite you to bring your special prayer intentions and place them at the feet of Mary. She brought light & life into the lives of the Irish people when she appeared at Knock; She can bring light & life into our lives too, no matter what the circumstances might be.
It is possible to follow the Knock Novena  by watching the videos below or via either of our social networks. Click below on the relevant one.

About Knock Apparition

On August 21st, 1879, the Blessed Virgin Mary, St. Joseph and St. John the Evangelist appeared at the south gable of the Church in Knock, County Mayo. Beside them was an altar with a cross and the figure of a lamb, around which angels hovered. There were 15 official witnesses to the apparition. They watched it for around 2 hours in the pouring
rain and recited the Holy Rosary. Knock has been visited by two Popes: Saint John Paul II in September 1979 and Pope Francis in 2018. More recently it has been designated an international Marion Shrine by Pope Francis and has full approval of the Church.

So, if you’ve been thinking about taking part in the Novena  follow with us as we are directed by Fr Adrian Farrelly O.P.

The National Novena to Our Lady of Knock

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Give praise to the Father Almighty,
To His Son, Jesus Christ the Lord,
To the Spirit who lives in our hearts,
both now and forever. Amen.

Our Lady of Knock, Queen of Ireland, you gave hope to your people in a time of distress, and comforted them in sorrow. You have inspired countless pilgrims to pray with confidence to your divine Son, remembering His promise, “Ask and you shall receive, seek and you shall find.”

Help me to remember that we are all pilgrims on the road to heaven. Fill me with love and concern for my brothers and sisters in Christ, especially those who live with me. Comfort me when I am sick, lonely or depressed.

Teach me how to take part ever more reverently in the Holy Mass. Give me a greater love of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament. Pray for me now, and at the hour of my death. Amen.

Lamb of God, you take away the sins of the world;
Have mercy on us.
Lamb of God, you take away the sins of the world,
Have mercy of us.
Lamb of God, you take away the sins of the world,
Grant us peace.

St. Joseph,
Chosen by God to be The Husband of Mary,
The Protector of the Holy Family,
The Guardian of the Church.
Protect our families
In their work and recreation
And Guard us on our journey through life.

St. John,
Beloved Disciple of the Lord,
