Knock Shrine is a Roman Catholic pilgrimage site and national Marian shrine in the village of Knock, County Mayo, Ireland. Each year, over 1.5 million pilgrims visit the Shrine to explore and deepen their faith.

Knock Shrine was seeking to increase faith renewal through workshops and seminars; refurbish its Basilica, virtually unchanged since the 1970s; and further promote the site as an international place of pilgrimage. The Shrine engaged CCS to assess the potential of conducting a major fundraising campaign and to provide support with its implementation.

Entitled Witness to Hope, the initiative secured funding within Ireland and internationally, receiving some of the largest gifts in the Shrine’s history. In exceeding its goal of €10 million, Knock ensured its aim of remaining a beacon of light and hope for parishioners, pilgrims, and visitors. CCS is currently working with Knock Shrine on its second endeavour, Together in Faith.
