The All-Night Vigil is a long-standing tradition at Knock Shrine, celebrated on the eve of the Feast of the Immaculate Conception and everyone is invited to join the night of prayer. This is a significant feast day, when we celebrate Mary’s Immaculate Conception; the fact that Mary was, from the very first moment of her existence, without sin, and chosen to be the Mother of Jesus.
The Vigil begins with Confessions from 10.00pm until Midnight on the night of Wednesday 7 December. The Vigil will continue in the Basilica from Midnight with Rosary, Holy Hour, Reflections and Private Prayer, concluding with Mass at 4.00am.
This is always a very special night to honour the Feast of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
The Vigil will be live-streamed online on the Knock Shrine website https://www.knockshrine.ie/ and Facebook page.
