When Our Lady appeared on August 21, 1879 to the people of Knock, it was after Ireland's great famine. Her apparition was a symbol of hope, consolation, and faith for the Irish.
Having a Votive Candle lit is a beautiful form of prayer. The light from the candle is a powerful symbol of Christ, the Light of the World. You may have a Votive Candle lit for yourself, a loved one or a special intention.
Each day, the Missionary Oblates remember in prayer the people and intentions symbolized by the candles.
You may have Votive Candle lit at the Shrine of Our Lady of Knock in Ireland. Your donation of $50 or more will benefit the Oblates' ministries in Ireland, the United States and around the world.
Please enter the name of your loved one or your intentions into the notes section on the checkout page.
