Dear “Virtual” Parishioner, Pilgrim and Visitor!

We miss you very much!!

It is a very strange time this Holy Week and Easter as we will not be together in the Basilica for our upcoming ceremonies. However do not worry, we will be with you every step of the way as we celebrate together online!
The times of the Holy Week and Easter ceremonies  are outlined here, I invite you to join us online at as we pray for the end to the Coronavirus and celebrate the most important time of the Christian calendar together. To make it feel special in your home, I suggest the following:

  1. Set aside a ceremony (or all of them) for all your household to come together.
  2. For Palm Sunday have a Palm ready or be creative and design one at home, have the children help!
  3. For Good Friday have a crucifix ready for the Passion at 3pm so that you can venerate the cross with me online at the same time.
  4. For the Easter Vigil at 9 pm on Holy Saturday, have a candle ready to light (safety taken into consideration!) at the same time I light the Easter Candle and leave it lighting just for the Mass.

Please keep safe and adhere to all that is being asked of you at this time for your own sake and the sake of the ones we love. In Knock we are praying with you and for you all the time and know that all will be well!

Until we meet in person, may our Lady of Knock, St Joseph and St John protect you all.

Fr Richard
