In 2017, the 100th anniversary of Our Lady’s apparitions at Fatima will be celebrated.  In preparation for this event, the shrine will be developing commemorative rosaries.  Check their web site at SHRINE@BLUEARMY.COM  for details.

To learn more about unique rosaries, read The Rosary Collector’s Guide by Gloria Brady Hoffner and Helen Hoffner.  This 152 page hardcover reference book, published by Schiffer Books, has over 200 color photographs of rosaries, crosses, crucifixes, and center medals.  It explains variations and gives historical background on rosaries ranging from those owned by England’s King Henry VIII to those bearing an image of Pope Francis.  The Rosary Collector’s Guide is available on Barnes and Noble.com, Amazon.com, the Catholic Company, the Catholic Faith Store, and other religious article stores, book stores, and online sellers.
