To prayerfully make rosaries available to church members to follow Christ’s instruction to persevere in prayer and to support our Blessed Mother’s request to pray the rosary daily. We provide rosaries for First Communicants, Confirmands, RCIA candidates, Churches, Chapels, and a wide variety of Catholic missions around the world. We teach the craft and provide supplies for making both chain and mission rosaries.
We usually meet in the Teacher’s Lounge at All Saints Church once a month on a Tuesday evening from 6:30 to 8:00. The purpose of these meetings is to receive training, pick up supplies, share techniques, and coordinate efforts to meet various objectives. Most rosary-making is done at home.
We provide all basic tools, rosary parts, and training. We ask that those interested in learning to make rosaries prayerfully consider the time commitment and meeting standards for quality construction. There are many blessings inevitably derived from this calling.
We are funded by the Knights of Columbus Auxiliary of the Catholic United Financial Society. However, any donations would be gratefully accepted if anyone would like to contribute to the funding. (Make payable to All Saints.)
This past year we made:
- 95 chain rosaries for First Communion students

We have made and sent:
1,950 mission rosaries have been shipped to seven different locations: Africa, India, Mexico, St Paul Street Evangelization, and organizations that ship needed rosaries to children's orphanages and other missions. Each shipment included the name of our organization, rosaries bundled with the name of the individual who made them, and requests for prayers.
