The Church of the Holy Innocents - The Book of Life

Last month, I have asked the Church of the Holy Innocents to have Alanna's name added to the "Book of Life". Here, a candle is always lit in memory of babies who have died before and at birth. People stop to pray all day long.  It gives me peace and comfort to know that she is remembered and prayed for everyday. Their pastor (Fr. Thomas Kallumady), who takes care of the Shrine ministry at the Holy Innocent sent me also a Certificate of Life. I am hoping that someday I will come to visit their Shrine in New York City.

If you are a parent who have lost a child and want to have the opportunity to have your baby's name inscribed in the Book of Life please do visit their site.

My Baby Alanna's Certificate of Life from
the Church of the Holy Innocents


  1. So beautiful! I had no idea this church existed. It's such a beautiful idea someone turned into reality and it is so comforting to know so many babies are being remembered and prayed for every day. I am definitely going to do this and I, too, hope to get the chance to visit this church in the future. And when I go I will stop and say a prayer for your Alanna.
