“Over 2,500 attended celebratory Mass”.
Every year across the EU, approx. 1 in 7 people fall victim to crime and to remember those victims, February 22nd has been designated European Victim of Crime Day across the EU.
To commemorate this special day, on Sunday, February 23rd, we held a special Mass in the Basilica at Knock, celebrated by Fr. Richard Gibbons, P.P. Over 2500 people joined with us including representatives of the Gardai, Prison Service, Medical Response, Politicians, County Counsellors, Legal Services and other NGO’s making it a memorable occasion which was followed by light refreshments afterwards in the Rest and Care Centre at Knock.
