Memorial to the Unborn
Nestled on the grounds of the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe, the Memorial to the Unborn provides a means of memorializing unborn children and providing a place of spiritual healing and closure for parents, relatives and friends.
Unborn children may be memorialized in two ways at the Memorial to the Unborn:
- Entombment of the remains of the unborn child in the columbarium, accompanied by the rite of blessing by an ordained bishop, priest or deacon in good standing with the Catholic Church and an inscription on the granite covering.
- Inscription of name and date on the limestone wall of the Memorial to the Unborn. Various inscription formats are available.
