Due to the severe impact of the current Covid-19 pandemic, Knock Shrine announced this afternoon that it will be placing its employees on a period of temporary lay-off from the end of this week.
The statement reads "We do this with a very heavy heart, but this crisis is unprecedented for all of us and this action is necessary in order to secure the long-term future of our valued employees.
Unfortunately, the weeks ahead present many unknowns but we are confident that we will overcome this crisis together and 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 both our Website (www.knockshrine.ie), Facebook and YouTube. Please also remember that you can continue to order your Mass Cards and Candles online from our Website and by telephone at 094 93 88100.
We hope and pray that we can all return to normality in the near future".
