Rosary Makers

For the Cause of Our Blessed Mother

Become a missionary by making rosaries for missions in the U.S., the military and around the world.  Please call Our Lady’s Rosary Makers (4611 Poplar Level Rd., P.O. Box 37080, Louisville, KY 40233), at (502) 968-1434 or (502) 968-1477 and order a beginner’s kit for less that $14.00.  The kit allows you to make 50 cord rosaries and comes with instructions.  Make a difference in the word.  Help bring peace to the world.  God will bless you abundantly.  Don’t forget to ask for the names and addresses of missionaries!
