I live in Santa Fe, NM, and was surprised at not seeing a guild in this city.

My parish priest (St. John the Baptist Catholic Church) introduced me to a young woman who had given him a flex-wire style of rosary. She wanted to know about the cord-style, which I have been making for about 3 years. She was interested in starting a club of rosary makers. Knowing the origins of OLRM and the information that is available in this site, I said I would look into the possibility. I asked the priest, Fr. Nathan, if any room would be available for such a meeting and was assured space at the church. So, now I need to come up with a message to place in the bulletin, and possibly in every parish bulletin in Santa Fe.
I thought I would try my hand at making rosaries with wire, and followed the video instructions in the OLRM site (after seeing it in the YouTube site.) I was asked to make a couple rosaries for nieces who are dealing with MS and breast cancer. Their response has inspired me to share the talent that I have been given. I have given most of the rosaries away that I made, first to the teen confirmation class at church, then the local hospital. I also knit and crochet, so my rosary production had been put on hold for awhile.
I look forward to the endeavor of starting a guild and pray that other people will share in awakening their faith through rosary making.

"guild" started

Postby anitag » Sun Feb 27, 2011 11:49 pm

There have been two meetings since I last posted. 11 people showed interest at the first meeting, and 7 at the second, with 4 as returnees. We are having a good experience learning the cord-style rosary, and there is one other person learning a new way to make wire rosaries. I will be sending a note to OLRM about the "guild", as we are not going with a formal makeup, but rather like the Fort Richardson, Alaska group. We will discuss the mission to receive rosaries and divide the cost as members can afford. There is good enthusiasm.
