Kits for Sacraments and Life-Events

A Sacrament is a sign instituted by Christ that gives grace. The Church recognizes seven special events of this kind, including Baptism, Confirmation, the Eucharist, and Matrimony (in addition to Penance, Healing and Holy Orders).

 

Boy's Baptism Rosary: Deep blue hearts, shimmery clear glass beads, and a baptism medal for the baby boy in your life. A small traditional crucifix is just the size for tiny fingers, and strong enough to withstand a little boy's first prayers. A black flocked pouch and baptismal holy card complete the gift.

Bouquet Rosary: When the rosary prayers are said, we are vocally adorning our Mother Mary with roses, hence the name "Rosary". Echoing the Scriptures, we proclaim her "full of grace" and "blessed among women" and heap roses of love upon the Mother of our Lord. This rosary would make an exquisite gift for the woman in your life whose mother-love makes you want to bring her roses. White satin pouch and gold-gilt holy card are included.
~$109.73: View/Edit or Add to Basket


 

Crown of Thorns Rosary: Meditating on the sufferings of Christ, this image sticks in our hearts and minds. Who has not been hurt, mocked, or tormented?

"But he was wounded for our transgressions, crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the punishment that made us whole, and by his bruises we are healed." Isaiah 53:5. A black pouch and holy card are included.

Our Lady of Guadalupe Rosary: The amazing story is told of Juan Diego, a humble Indian peasant of Guadalupe, Mexico, to whom the "lady of heaven" appeared in 1531.

The colorful beads of this rosary are teamed with a Guadalupe center, a bold crucifix, a Guadalupe holy card and black pouch.

St. Joseph Rosary: Chosen by God to father the heavenly child, St. Joseph is also the patron of the universal Church. Pope Leo XIII wrote "It is, then, natural and worthy that as the Blessed Joseph ministered to all the needs of the family at Nazareth and girt it about with his protection, he should now cover with the cloak of his heavenly patronage and defend the Church of Jesus Christ." This rosary is suitable for fathers, grandfathers, and anyone with a devotion to St. Joseph. A Pouch and St. Joseph holy card are included.

Knights of Columbus Rosary: We used to carry parts so that you could make Knights of Columbus rosaries. These parts were purchased through legitimate sources, at the request of various Knights or people who wanted to make a special gift for a Knight. However, without any warning or discussion, in February of 2009 the Knights of Columbus threatened to sue us if we didn't stop doing so and immediately comply with a variety of demands. Among other things, they falsely claimed that we were using the Knights of Columbus to promote and market our own business, that we were engaging in unfair competition with them, and that we were harming them.

Lourdes Rosary: Lourdes, France, 1856. Young Bernadette was walking in the mountains when Mother Mary appeared to her. The miracles surrounding Lourdes and the spring of water found there have been a source of inspiration throughout the world. This strong flexwire rosary will call to mind the love Mary has for the most humble of her children. The colorful center pictures Bernadette and Mary. The crucifix contains genuine holy water from the fountain at Lourdes and is stamped "LOURDES" on the back. A black pouch is included for safe keeping along with a gold-gilt Lourdes holy card.

St. Theresa Rosary: "I have never given the good God anything but love, and it is with love that He will repay. After my death, I will let fall a shower of roses.
