Dominican pilgrimage to Knock

Interior of basilica Knock shrine Co Mayo

Irish readers of this blog will be interested to know of the annual Dominican pilgrimage to Our Lady's shrine at Knock, Co Mayo. It takes place tomorrow Sunday October 13th.

You would be welcome to join us in the usual pilgrimage programme associated with the shrine. The rite of the anointing of the sick takes place at 2.30 pm followed by the celebration of the Eucharist. The homilist this year is Fr Larry Collins OP. The rosary procession follows the Mass.

This year, the Dominican province of Ireland will be consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary by the provincial of the Dominican friars - Fr Gregory Carroll OP. The consecration coincides with the consecration of the world by Pope Francis in Rome tomorrow.

Please pray for the Irish Dominican province as this act of consecration entrusts our life and ministry to Our Blessed Mother - patroness of the Order.
