A Novena with a Difference

What an honour it was to have Pope Francis on his visit to Knock Shrine in August 2019 bless our beautiful picture of Our Lady Untier of Knots just in time for our Novena in September 2018. Preparations are well on the way for our 2019 Novena.


September, St. Mary’s Church, Headford.

We invite you to this special Novena that is close to Pope Francis’ heart. As he has explained to us that: “Mary always brings us to Jesus, she is a woman of faith, a true believer…all the knots of our heart; every knot of our conscience, can be undone, when we entrust them to Mary our Mother, she as a woman of faith will understand us and lead us by the hand as a mother, our Mother, to the embrace of Our Father, the Father of mercies.” (Pope Francis Homily 7th January 2016).

Each evening we begin with the novena prayers followed by the celebration of Mass. At the time of the homily a guest speaker will address us on the various ‘Knots’ that entangle us in our lives and which may take away our peace and serenity.

Please pray that this novena will bring many blessings on our parish and on all who participate in this Novena.
