About Our Sponsor:
Our Lady’s Rosary Makers was founded in 1949 by Xaverian Brother Sylvan Mattingly on the premise that he would teach people to make rosaries and they would distribute them freely to missionaries. OLRM’s mission, set forth by Brother Sylvan, envisions a world in which all God’s children possess an instrument of peace and comfort.
