During the course of the year there are a number of pilgrimages that are offered to interested parishioners. Some of these are organised by the parish itself or indeed the diocese. There are other pilgrimages organised by experienced parishioners from both St. Canice's and St. Margaret's. There is a mixture of day pilgrimages (regularly to Knock) and foreign pilgrimages. In the past there have been pilgrimages to Lourdes, The Holy Land, Fatima and Rome. Many of the pilgrimages are indeed very popular and the number of places are often limited. In order to be kept abreast of upcoming planned pilgrimages make sure to read the latest Newsletter.
Our Lady of Knock , Queen of Ireland, you gave hope to your people in a time of distress and comforted them in sorrow. You have inspired countless pilgrims to pray with confidence to your divine Son, remembering His promise, “Ask and you shall receive, seek and you shall find”. Help me to remember that we are all pilgrims on the road to Heaven. Fill me with love and concern for my brothers and sisters in Christ, especially those who live with me. Comfort me when I am sick, lonely or depressed. Teach me how to take part ever more reverently in the Holy Mass. Give me a greater love of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament. Pray for me now and at the end of my death. Amen.
