Rosaries at the Catholic Marketing Network Trade Show

25 Jul

CMA4 The Rosary Collectors visited the Catholic Marketing Network International Trade Show to see new rosaries that are being prepared to celebrate the 2015 World Meeting of Families.

CMA6 Religious art, such as the official Holy Family portrait designed for the World Meeting of Families, was highlighted.  In the past, portraits of the Holy Family have shown only the immediate family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph.  The new World Meeting of Families portrait shows an extended family, Jesus, Mary and Joseph as well as Mary’s parents, St. Anne and St. Joachim.



CMA5 While at the trade show, Helen Hoffner and Gloria Brady Hoffner, authors of The Rosary Collector’s Guide, discussed their rosary collection and research on the rosary’s history with Boston’s radio station WQPH 89.3.

 To learn more about unique rosaries, read The Rosary Collector’s Guide by Gloria Brady Hoffner and Helen Hoffner.  Published by Schiffer Publishing, this 152 page hardcover book has over 200 color photographs of rosaries, center medals, crosses, and crucifixes.  The Rosary Collector’s Guide is available on Barnes and,, The Catholic Faith Store Online, and other religious article stores, book stores, and online sellers.
