COVID-19 impacts at Knock Shrine

Due to the severe impact of the current Covid-19 pandemic, Knock Shrine announced today that is will be placing its employees on a period of temporary lay-off from the end of this week.  We do this with a very heavy heart, but this crisis is unprecedented for all of us and this action was necessary in order to secure the long-term future of our valued employees.

Unfortunately, the weeks ahead present many unknowns but I am confident that we will overcome this crisis together and we will come back stronger than ever.

This situation has forced a new way of thinking for the Shrine and we will continue to live-stream two Masses each day on our website, Facebook and YouTube.  Please also remember that you can continue to order your Mass Cards and Candles online from our Website.

We hope and pray that we can all return to normality in the near future.
