Shrine of the Unborn
at the Church of the Holy Innocents
This wonderful shrine is dedicated to the multitudes of unborn children who are without gravesites or tombstones.  Due to miscarriage or a regrettable abortion, you can send in the name of your unborn baby to the shrine and the name(s) will be inscribed into the Church's "Book of Life."  A candle is kept lit in the shrine, people frequently stop by the shrine to pray, and on the first Monday of each month, a 12:15 PM mass is said in honor of these unborn children and for their family members still on earth.   Mail your child's given name to: Shrine of the Unborn, 128 West 37th Street, New York, NY, 10018.  Or, click here to inscribe your child's name online.
