Book of Life
The John Paul II Centre Book of Life (pictured left) is a special memorial book for anyone who has lost a child in the womb or at birth and wishes to have somewhere to memorialize their little one. The Book of Life has been lovingly handcrafted and inside its beautiful wooden frame it houses specially printed pages where the names of lost little ones can be handwritten. The Book of Life is kept in a central spot in our chapel, so that those with names in it can come and spend time reflecting on their little one, and every week all of the babies recorded in the Book of Life are prayed for at our team Mass.
