This Kit contains all the materials to make 100 Cord Rosaries. Finished rosaries can be sent to: The Family Rosary, Attn: Mission Rosary Donations, 518 Washington St., North Easton, MA 02356. They distribute them around the world to needy children, families and missionaries who have requested them. Extra rosaries can also be donated to the missions, nursing homes, or shut-ins. DIRECTIONS FOR #84-R ST. THERESA MISSION ROSARY Cut off a piece of Cord about thirty inches long. Tie a firm knot in one end. Dip the other end (which for ease in threading should be cut diagonally), in clear nail polish and let dry for a minute or two to form a "needle". Thread the Cord through one of the upper holes of the Centerpiece, from back to front so that the knot will be on the backside of the Center. Pull the Cord through and be sure that the knot will hold. Now start making the Decades; first, a spacer, then ten beads, a spacer, a bead (Our Father), a spacer, ten beads, and so on until you have the necessary five Decades. Then add a spacer. Hold the Cord up by the needle end and let it swing freely until all tendency to twist is gone. Then thread the Cord from front to back through the other upper hole in the centerpiece. Leave a little slack in the Cord so that the beads will slide freely (a quarter to a half inch is ample), and tie a knot in the end. Be sure the knot is strong enough to remain tied and cut the Cord a short distance beyond it. Tie another knot, thread through the lower hole in the Center, pull tight, thread a spacer, a bead, a spacer, three beads, a spacer, a bead and a spacer. Thread through the top of the Crucifix, tie a knot in back (allowing a little play), and cut. Your Rosary is complete. As an added precaution, you can put a drop of the nail polish on each of the knots. This will prevent their ever coming untied. Bead colors available are: Black, White, Red, Sapphire or Assorted Colors.

Well, yes. My goal was to make a rosary with only two knots and we got it down to a science. Cut the appr len cord, thread thru cross and tie off. Then build up to the junction medal, in bottom out one side, string all the decades, then back thru junction and tie off at bottom of junction. Easy Peazy. Because I'm involved in the St Pauls Street Evangelization, folks always want to put them over their head and wear them (yes, quite legal and promoted). We bought extra tubes and use 5 tubes on each side of the upper part after leaving junction. Sometimes use black or grey tubes with black beads. Black rosaries fly off our evang table. I only have one eye so my wife does the stringing and I do the "feeding" her the next parts. Takes us 9 minutes to do a rosary. zoom zoom for our Lady! My wife thinks she is a Buddhist but Our Lady will make a Catholic out of her yet!

I began making these Rosaries with my son when he was three. Together, we have made close to 2000. We send them to missions who are always grateful. I'm so glad there is a simple way to fill the need.

I've made 400 of these rosaries. They are easy to make. If one pre-cuts the string and secures the knot with glue or clear nail polish, a rosary can be made in approximately 15 minutes. After assembly the knots can be secured with nail polish or glue
