If you'd like to buy one of my rosaries or if you'd like me to make you a custom rosary or if you'd like to have me repair your rosary, you're in the right place. I can't tell you how cool that is. Seriously. I'm honored just to know that you're here on my website thinking about including me in your prayer needs. But, I need to explain to you how this works.
The first thing to know is that while I do have a passion for making and repairing rosaries, I do not necessarily have a passion for running an online store. So, my process is a little different than others.
To purchase a rosary that I've already made, browse through all my custom-made rosaries and look for those marked with the (A), which means "available". Then drop me an email and tell me about your interest. Be sure to include your name and address.
I'm sorry if I don't have a large inventory; the selection of rosaries available at any given time just depends on what I've been making lately. But, please keep in mind that I'm more than happy to make a custom rosary for you.
You'll cover the cost of the parts. Then all I ask is that you make a donation to the scholarship fund described below. If you prefer, you can pay me (via PayPal) and I'll then make the donation.
I don't do this for money. This is not a job, it's a vocation. I really do consider it an honor to be a small part of your rosary story. Therefore, all money I make from this will be donated to the Blaise Peters Scholarship Fund at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic School in De Pere, Wisconsin. I'm familiar with other vendors who sell rosaries or perform repairs, who say things like "10% of our profits support Catholic charities." I think that's incredible, that they are able to run their business while committing funds to worthy causes like that; I encourage you to support these businesses. But to be clear, with my work, 100% of profits support Catholic charities. The only cost that I try to cover is the cost of parts (crucifix, centerpiece, beads, chain, etc).
MotivationI am the beneficiary of an education at several incredible Catholic schools, with even more incredible teachers. My parents, Stan & Meredith, always believed heavily in Catholic education, both having attended Catholic elementary and high schools themselves. And my wife and I made sure our own daughters also attended Catholic school. As such, it would warm my heart to know that you've helped families with their desire to provide a Catholic education for their kids.
So, all costs I've described above will be donated to the scholarship fund. 100%.
