Knock Shrine will officially reopen on Tuesday next, (11 May) for public Mass.
Parish Priest Fr Richard Gibbons says it also includes the facilitation of private prayer and the resumption of confessions.
From Monday to Friday, Mass will take place in Knock Parish Church at 12 noon, 3pm and 7.30pm (with Rosary at 7pm). Attendance will be restricted to a maximum of 50 people in the Parish Church on a first-come, first-served basis with queuing in place.
Due to necessary maintenance works taking place throughout May, the Basilica will open at weekends-only for Mass, and will be closed to the public at all other times. On Saturdays, Mass will take place in the Basilica at 12 noon, 3pm and 7.30pm (with Rosary at 7pm) and on Sundays at 12 noon and 3pm (with Rosary at 2.30pm).
Attendance in the Basilica will be restricted to a maximum of 200 people (first-come, first-served basis) with queuing systems in place.
From June onwards, it is planned that all Masses will take place in the Basilica in order to accommodate pilgrims.
