Archdiocese of Armagh, Virtual Pilgrimage to Knock 2021


The Covid 19 pandemic has meant that we are again unable to travel to Knock as an Archdiocese in 2021.  The annual pilgrimage to Knock is a high point in the Archdiocesan Calendar that many look forward to and so Canon Fee and his committee has developed a Virtual Pilgrimage that will again be available online.

Pope Francis has dedicated this year to St. Joseph and so this year as we journey through our Virtual Pilgrimage we reflect on St. Joseph, his impact on the life of Jesus and the role he plays in each of our lives. 

You can access Archbishop Eamon’s Welcome, each of the daily reflections from five Churches dedicated to St. Joseph in the Archdiocese, and Bishop Michael’s mass streamed live from Knock by clicking any of the images or links below:
