What is The Hub?
Knock is a great place for people to come to explore their faith, experience Gods love, or take a break from the busy world. The HUB (Hear, Understand, Believe) is a place for all young people in Knock Shrine. The HUB runs a daily Summer programme, offers group retreats, run a ‘kids club’ and provides a ‘drop in’ space for all who would like to visit.
Kids Club-‘The Ark’
Parents: Need some time to yourself? Why not drop your child to ‘the ark’ for an hour The Ark is the children’s area in Knock Shrine (Children over 5 years old) Whilst the kids are with us, they will have sessions on the ‘gospel of the day’, colouring, singing and loads of activities for children to have a fun and interactive hour. • Children must be over the age of 5 • Parents must fill out a form and leave contact details with the staff • Your child must be picked up one hour after you leave them • Numbers are limited so you may not get your child in at exactly the right time but a new group is admitted every hour so don’t worry they will get a chance to spend time with us.
Drop in Centre
Looking for a place to chill out? Why not call into the HUB for a tea or coffee? The drop in is a place for teens and young adults to come and relax. In the drop in you will find games, reading material, a place to chill out and have a cup of tea and coffee or a chat!

Pilgrimages Are you planning your diocesan or orders pilgrimage to Knock Shrine? Why not invite the young people in your dioceses to join you. Each year thousands of pilgrims come to Knock Shrine on their annual pilgrimages. We want young people to feel a part of these pilgrimages and get involved in their annual pilgrimage to Knock Shrine. Knock Youth Ministry will help you plan and organise a day for the young people you bring. We can provide workshops, organise a story and tour and a trip to Knock Museum.
