A newborn baby who still had his umbilical cord attached was found wrapped in swaddling clothes — and lying in a manger — at a Queens church on Monday.

The infant was abandoned at Holy Child Jesus Church in Richmond Hill and was discovered in the church’s indoor nativity scene around 1:00 p.m., according to police sources.

“The baby was found in creche, a sort of manger scene where we would put the baby Jesus during Christmas time,” Father Christopher Heanue told The Post.

“The church is considered a safe haven for drop offs,” he said Tuesday.”The baby was brand new. He still had the umbilical cord attached. It’s a beautiful baby boy.”

The child was later transported to Jamaica Hospital — where he weighed in at a healthy 5 pounds, 6 ounces. Surveillance video shows a woman walking inside with a baby in her arms and then shows her leaving alone, sources said.

A custodian who was setting up the nativity scene left for about an hour but returned and heard the baby crying

“There are families within the parish who have inquired as to the adopting the baby already,” he explained. “They feel that he was left in the parish and should stay in the parish.”

Karina Lara, 28, has been a member of the church for 7 years and says she found out about the abandoned baby on Facebook.

“I feel so sad that the child’s mother felt she had to abandon him, but it’s a blessing that she brought him here,” she said. “This is a beautiful church with beautiful people and his life will be blessed from this point on.”

Corrine Gower , who was visiting Holy Child on Tuesday, believes the only reason the baby survived was because it had been left inside the church, as opposed to out in the cold.

“It’s a miracle the baby survived. He could have just been dumped into the street last night,” she said. “The mother did the right thing by bringing the baby here. It’s such a loving community. I just know someone from the church will adopt him. That little boy is always going to be a part of this church. If I didn’t have two already I would consider it.

“I think it would be so appropriate to name him Jesus,” Gower added. “He was found in the nativity after all.”

iagree.gif It must be a bad situation when you abandon your baby, but at least you know you're not able to care for it. The baby will hopefully be raised by loving parents.

Is it me or does this seem to happen at least once every year?


What politics from both sides wants to teach us is that things are never complex. If you have your little package and something doesn't fit into that package, You don't know what to make of it so you want to dismiss it or then you will have to do the work of reconsidering your assumptions. - Michael Malice

Seems like it. 13.gif If they had the nativity scene displayed around the year it would happen every day probably.

I recall a true story of a man who some how (???) managed to place a woman in his remote rural home, where he would rape and beat her daily. She became pregnant, bore the child there and she tried to keep the baby alive (perhaps her ray of light in the darkness). After some time, she begged him to buy the baby formula (she must have dried up) ... he said "no". So when she had a chance she took the baby and went to the general store, of course she had no money, so she was caught in the act of stealing baby food and arrested. Best thing to happen to the both of them.

There are couples lined up - "LINED UP" - to adopt that baby.
