Franciscan Sunday at Knock Shrine

Processional Statue of Our Lady of Knock

Yesterday, I travelled to Knock Shrine with a group from Church Street to join the National Franciscan Pilgrimage. Weather held out and allowed the Rosary procession to take place outside. There was a good turn out and the a very nice atmosphere. Our very own Br Michael Duffy was the preacher and spoke, in true Capuchin style, about how, in light of the Congress, we are all called to become agents of renewal in the Church. Carmel Lyons SFO from Raheny read the second reading for the Solemnity of the Nativity of John the Baptist. We were lead in beautiful music and singing by the Knock Choir.
