The 17 October 2020 marks the 10th anniversary of Australia's first saint, Saint Mary of the Cross Mackillop. In celebration of this we have commissioned a beautiful set of rosary beads.
These rosary beads were designed and handmade in Italy by the Ghirelli family who have been producing rosaries for over thirty years, including the official rosaries for the last three Popes. This set features Mary MacKillop on the central medal with her name and canonisation date on the reverse side. The Our Father medals show Our Lady, St Joseph, the Sacred Heart and Mary MacKillop’s words ‘Trust in God.' The crucifix is intricate, emphasising the Sacred Heart of Jesus. All the medals and links are finished in vintage bronze and the actual beads are faceted copper bohemian glass. Each rosary comes in its own keepsake pouch. This commemorative rosary has been produced with the consultation and approval of the Sisters of St Joseph of the Sacred Heart.
This rosary has been made exclusively for our benefactors. To request your rosary, with donations of $50 or over, please put 'Mary Mackillop Rosary' in the comments field below. Please note that we can only give one rosary per benefactor.
St Mary of the Cross. Pray for us.
