Our Lady of Knock Shrine - The geographical location and panoramic setting of Mayo, Quebec is very close to the landscape of the original shrine in Knock, Ireland. The people of this municipality are descendants of the early Irish settlers from County Mayo. The story of the apparition and devotion to Our Lady of Knock was brought to Eastern Canada as early as 1882. This devotion continues and is still evident today, not only in Ireland, but also at the annual pilgrimage and those who visit during the year. The 61st annual pilgrimage is scheduled for Sunday August 16, 2015. The presider and homilist will be Fr. Michael Leclerc.
