Each year, the Office of Human Life and Dignity hosts a Mass for families of “precious ones” following a loss through miscarriage or following an abortion. These Masses are held in November at the National Shrine of Our Lady of La Leche in St. Augustine and the Santa Fe Shrine of Our Lady of La Leche in High Springs.
Precious Ones burial swaddles and outfits are available free of charge by contacting the Office of Human Life and Dignity at (904) 262-3200, ext. 159 or (904) 208-6964.
Precious Ones Mass Cards
Mass cards are available for $10.00 by contacting the Office of Human Life and Dignity. The child will be remembered in daily prayer, at the Precious Ones Mass and the donation will go to the campaign to help families following a miscarriage.

A diocesan campaign to build a mausoleum for unborn children lost through miscarriage and early infant death. It will be located at San Lorenzo cemetery in St. Augustine, and will have a garden and a bench for families visiting. Baby and family names may be printed on paver bricks. Donations are welcome!
