Interest in rosary collecting has been growing throughout the world.   As authors of The Rosary Collector’s Guide, we recently had the honor of bringing part of our collection to Holy Family University in Philadelphia, PA.    Display cases featured military rosaries, relic rosaries, rosaries used at weddings, and those associated with organizations such as the Knights of Columbus.  A large section of the display included rosaries and rosary boxes with images of the popes.    One display case featured rosaries honoring saints including Kateri Tekakwitha , Katherine Drexel, and Padre Pio.    Due to Holy Family University’s close proximity to St. Hubert’s High School, we brought rosaries and medals honoring St. Hubert.    We enjoyed speaking with the many  St. Hubert’s alumni and students who visited.  They were proud to explain how the deer and cross on the St. Hubert’s medal related to the life of the saint.

As guests toured the exhibit, they spoke of cherished family rosaries as well as unique rosaries they found on their travels.  The gathering of rosary enthusiasts provided a wonderful opportunity to share stories and knowledge of the rosary.

We enjoy discussing our collection and answering the questions of rosary collectors.  We can be reached by e-mail at rosarycollector@aol.com

You can learn more about collectible rosaries by reading our newest book, The Rosary Collector’s Guide, a 152 page hardcover reference book with over 240 color photographs of rosaries, crosses, crucifixes, and center medals.   Published by Schiffer Books, The Rosary Collector’s Guide is available on  Barnes and Noble.com, Amazon.com, as well as in bookstores.   The
