OUR INTERCESSORS 
 These two honorary guild members look over our worktable.  Some mornings we come to the table and things aren't quite the way we left them and we wonder - if possible (and we know it is possible), just possibly we have had some heavenly company rearranging a few beads here and there - ideas come together from these new arrangements - and many are now on the site. So we feel free to say. "Thank you dear Mary and Little Flower, we love what you do for us, we love your rosaries!"

RETIRED GUILD MEMEBERS
love and mikss ya!
CAROL M
 SUE L

LEFT : CAROL M: VP of beads - she keeps the group from  getting too serious - when she laughs beads fly all over the place. Carol has chaired the Life in the Spirit Seminars, annual Church Bazaar, and she and her husband have spent years as EMs.  Pretty busy these days being a gramma and great gramma - a great cook!  Carol made rosaries, kept the inventory books up to date. And we share 2 grandkids! Deeply missed as she was here the longest.
+
RIGHT: SUE L:   VP of spreadsheets - and stuff like that. Sue and her husband Al were very active at our church.  She oversaw the EM ministry, teaches HS.CCD, the bible study programs at church.  3 grandchildren, includes twins! Sue was who you talk to when ordering parts and bible study DVDs. Husband AL is one of our church ushers and a member of the K of C. They moved to be closer to their grandchildren and are missed.


PAT D
CLARA C
+
LEFT: PAT D:  Pat is VP of silly jokes -  She and her husband are right hand helpers to our priest.  Pat  does Communion services when Sister is  gone,  fills in as Lector and at the parish office when needed. Love their many grandchildren and they are now loyal Florida snowbirds!
+
RIGHT: CLARA C.  VP of crimping pliers (inside joke), herbs, acupuncture, and all kinds of health things. She and her husband Javier are both EMs.  Chaperoned youth to Steubenville  as attending doctors as both are surgeons.  They have 2 children and now practice in NH 
+
NOT PICTURED:  LINDA K:  Linda is a beautiful inspiration and example of a Cancer survivor.   She inspires us all with her positive response to "terminal" as she is much too busy living and traveling all over the place!  Her daughter Tina works for the Rosary Workshop (see above)
 WE GIVE THANKS!
Our gifts are spread out beyond this ministry - in music (choir director), Eucharist ministry, teaching at the Prayer Group or  CCD, working with Pre Marriage and preparing our youth for Confirmation. And we just seem to hang out together.  Most of us have been to Franciscan University at Steubenville - either through chaperoning our youth to the Conferences or simply - taking credited courses - and all of us belong to the Fruit of the Spirit Prayer Group. And yes, the husbands are all friends and pray together in the men's group!  God is Good!
+
In  2000, the year of God's favor,  the guild did a pilgrimage to the cathedral of our Diocese in Marquette MI, where we spent the day with many other pilgrims from the UP of Michigan.  First, we met with the Bishop, then with a dear friend and fellow Michigan resident, 'Butch' Jim Murphy.  Jim led us in a mini retreat, sharing with us how the Lord worked through his people on his pilgrimage walk across the UP 10 years ago. (This would be a simple trek compared to his next walk requested by several of our US Bishops.  The pilgrimage walk from Florida to California (93-94) was one of forgiveness and unity.)  We shared Eucharist, then sat down to wonderful dinner before returning home on our pilgrim bus. And our hearts GIVE THANKS as the sign behind us shares, to you for your encouragement and support over the last 5 years.

~ MISSION STATEMENT ~
 OUR VISION IS TO ...
... provide the finest handmade rosaries, chaplets and other fine religious art forms for personal worship we can make for the glory of our Lord. There are millions of plastic Rosaries out there and beautiful prayers are said on them with just as much heart, but our vision is to design and craft the finest work we can for you with the materials at hand. The Guild believes fine art and craft gives visual Glory to God, therefore for us, the best for you is very, very important as He deserves our best.

  NOW WE SEE HIM  -  NOW WE DON'T!
Well, who is he?  We are not really sure.  He followed us home from Germany so we put him on top of the computer where he sits.  Problem is, he keeps jumping in front of the keyboard then off to the beads.

HOBBLET
(Escaped from OberAmmergau)
+
Our biggest problem is that he loves beads.  Loves beads!  Loves to string beads but as you can see, his beard keeps getting in the way and the beads fall off the strings into his beard.  (still some hidden in there) What should we do?  He is kinda cute ... guess we will call him, 'HOBBLET!
