We will go on pilgrimage to Knock on Sunday 13th of October 2013 to ask Our Lady to accompany us on our journey of faith this year and to join the Church in praying to Our Lady as Pope Francis consecrates the world to Her Immaculate Heart in front of the statue of Our Lady of Fatima in Rome on that same day.
We will travel to Knock by bus. The bus journey will take about 4 hours including a stop off in Athlone for breakfast.
The pilgrimage as such will begin on the bus travelling from Athlone to Knock with readings, the Rosary and silence.
We will have packed lunch together in St John's Rest and Care Centre. The Centre provides tea and coffee but you should bring your own lunch.
