The team from Knock House Hotel were today delighted to welcome Ukrainian Ambassador Larysa Gerasko for Ukrainian Day at Knock Novena 2022. During her visit to Knock Shrine, Ambassador Gerasko met refugee families attending the National Novena, with prayers for peace in Ukraine during a special ceremony in the Basilica.

This year's Novena theme is particularly poignant – 'A Journey in Hope' – with the Ambassador thanking the people of Ireland for extending the hand of friendship to her fellow Ukrainians and making them feel safe.

Further details of Ambassador Gerasko’s visit are available on RTE News HERE.
