Feel free to tell the world – or at least your portion of the world – about the beautiful Rosary Wall we have here at The Marianist Retreat and Conference Center.
The idea for this project came a couple of years ago when The MORE Team visited Queen of All Saints Parish here in St. Louis for a Confirmation retreat. In Queen’s youth room, where the MORE Team prayed before the retreat began, was a rosary wall. All of us on the team fell in love with it, and as we talked about it we just knew that having a rosary wall here at our retreat center would be a huge blessing to our guests and benefactors.
Our retreat center staff is regularly blessed when we see that our guest have taken beautiful rosaries home with them after attending a retreat here. When some groups leave our retreat center, one or two rosaries are missing from the wall. Sometimes, they are all missing. And we joyfully replenish the wall, knowing that Our Lady is doing her thing of drawing her kids closer to Jesus.
One really cool experience that really makes our hearts happy is when our non-Catholic brothers and sisters take rosaries with them, and that happens a lot! We can’t tell you how much that blesses us!
We are always seeking donations of non-plastic rosaries for our rosary wall, so that we can offer our guests an array of choices. If you have a beautiful rosary you are not using and would like to donate, this is the perfect place for it! Rosaries can be dropped off at the retreat center (place them on the front porch if the front door is locked) or mailed to:
Marianist Retreat & Conference Center, 4000 HWY 109, Eureka, MO 63025
Thanks so much, and God Bless!
