Shrine of the Holy Innocents: a Beautiful Ministry for Grieving Parents of the Unborn

I just received this from Fr. Thomas Kallumady, director of the Shrine of the Holy Innocents ministry at The Church of the Holy Innocents in New York city.

If you have experienced a pregnancy loss at any stage, you can have your child's name inscribed in their book of life, and you can receive a certificate of life like the one I received. I was so touched to receive Fr. Thomas's personal email to me last week which was utterly sensitive and beautiful.
Thank you, Lord, for such a ministry!


  1. This is beautiful - thank-you for sharing it and your sweet Romeo Gerard with us.

  2. Yes, they are wonderful! I am so glad you got to do this. It makes a huge difference in our grieving that a priest would take the time to do this, doesn't it? Praise God for this ministry and for Romeo Gerard's life.
