VAKS stands for volunteer at Knock Shrine and is for young people in TY, 5th year, and LC that runs over July and August. VAKS gives young people an opportunity to to learn more about their faith, to meet new people, gain new skills, and of course, to have fun. We do this, simply put, by assisting the pilgrim. This could mean assisting with the sacrament of the blessing of the sick, directing people on where to go or what time things are at on during the day, greeting busses in the car park, welcoming everyone to Knock, spending time making mini rosary beads with families, chatting about their day, etc.
There is a mandatory training day – Sunday May 21st. This day includes training such as communication training, manual handling training (specific to the use of wheelchairs),
Our VAKS join us from about 5:30 on a Friday and stay here with the Youth Ministry team until around 6pm on Sunday. Contact Mairead Jennings
Director of Youth Ministry, Our Lady’s Shrine, Knock, 0949375321.
