Yesterday was the annual Dominican pilgrimage to the Marian shrine at Knock, Co Mayo. This is traditionally the last official big pilgrimage of the season, and the Dominican pilgrimage each year consistently attracts large numbers from all around the county.
So, also yesterday several thousand people were present at Knock Shrine for the event. The pilgrimage gave opportunity to availe of the sacrament of reconciliation, the celebration of the sacrament of the sick, the celebration of the eucharist and finished with the rosary procession.
This years preacher was Fr Anthony Morris OP of the Sligo community, who gave us a wonderful homily on Our Lady, and her central role among the people of God.
Some photos of the event will follow soon.
