National Shrine of Our Lady of Knock, Ireland - Church


Situated in County Mayo on the West Coast of Ireland, the National Shrine of Our Lady of Knock marks the site where on August 21 1879, it is said Our Lady the Virgin Mary appeared in a spirit. Our Lady is said to have appeared with St. Joseph and St. John the Evangelist at the church’s south gable on a wet and inhospitable evening in August and was witnessed by 15 people. The place of pilgrimage attracts many visitors all through the year but the foremost pilgrimage season is from the last Sunday in April until the second Sunday in October.  It's a place to find both tranquility in a custom of solitary prayer before the Blessed Sacrament and the sense of get-together in faith during Mass, when the bucks of life is shared and the devout bond between God's children revived.
