Welcome to Our Lady’s Rosary Makers
Our Lady’s Rosary Makers was founded in 1949 by Brother Sylvan Mattingly, C.F.X. This Xaverian Brother taught people to make rosaries on the premise that they would make rosaries and distribute them freely to missionaries. Our Mission, set forth by our founder, Brother Sylvan, who envisioned a world in which all God’s children, possessing an instrument of peace and comfort, would work to fulfill Our Lady’s requests at Fatima, to pray the Rosary daily, is to provide those in need of a Rosary with one.
OLRM provides low cost materials, resources, and support in the spirit of Br. Sylvan’s mission and vision. We are a member driven, non-profit, Catholic lay apostolate within the Archdiocese of Louisville. Our diverse and active members spread devotion through the Immaculate Heart of Mary by making and sharing the Rosary with the world’s spiritually needy.
My mother and father, Dorothy and Hubert Pezzi have been making rosaries for several years now. Between the the two of them they have donated over 1000 rosaries to your mission. Not counting all they made and gave away to friends, family and church members. Every new member to their church gets one. She always told me how relaxing it was for her. Every bead she added she would say the appropriate prayer. She pasted on 6/6/20. My dad has stopped making them and he use to really enjoy it. He started many years ago and taught mom. I was hoping that asking him to teach me would get him started again. Something happened while making my first rosary. A calmness if you will. After making a few my daughter wanted to learn. Now the two of us are wanting to make them. Mom bought her centerpieces and crucifix’s from you according to dad so we made our first order of hopefully many. Once we learn the ins and outs we want to try making heirloom rosaries at some point.
