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.
If you want me to repair your rosary, start by sending me an email with your request. Please include a photo of the rosary along with a description of what you know about it and what needs fixing. Once we confirm that I can repair it, you'll ship it to me (you pay), I'll repair it and ship it back to you (I'll pay). Or, if you're a neighbor of mine, hit me up after Mass some time and we can do this all in person.
You'll cover the cost of the parts. Then all I ask is that you make a donation to the scholarship fund described below.
I don't do this for money or profit. This is not a job, it's a vocation, a calling. I really do consider it an honor to be a small part of your rosary story. Therefore, I direct ALL money earned from my rosary work to benefit the Blaise Peters Scholarship Fund at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic School in De Pere, Wisconsin. The only cost that I need to cover is the cost of parts (crucifix, centerpiece, beads, chain, etc). So, to be clear, if I make a rosary for you, you'll make two payements: one to me to reimburse my costs and another to the scholarship fund (see below).
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.
If I've made a rosary for you and you donate to this fund, you can do so in any amount you feel is appropriate. I don't need to know how much. If you need some guidance, I know of a customer who donated $20 and another who donated $250. So, you decide.
