Holy Mary, Mother of God, Queen of Peace, pray for us.

cord rosary

Hand-made Corded Military Rosary
  specifications for Seat of Wisdom ministry:

  • black plastic crucifix, not cross
  • no plastic beads - "beads" made from knotted cord only
  • specific camouflage colors - source below
  • cord that does not have a shiny finish

 ***  If you are making rosaries for a certain military member or battalion on active duty, or to donate to a group other than Seat of Wisdom, it is best to ask that chaplain if there are any restrictions or requirements for the location in which the rosary will be used.


On behalf of the Catholic Marines, Soldiers, Sailors and Airmen, thank you for your kind thoughts and prayers.  Please continue to pray for all who serve our country.

More camouflage rosaries are currently needed (July 2017).  They are greatly appreciated by members of our Armed Forces.  If you wish to send a care package of cord rosaries to be given to individual troops or veterans through their chaplains, directions are given here.

  You may contact us for a mailing address in the USA.

Thank you for your support!

Twine by Design  #36 rosary cord:

Both *Desert Camo* and *Army Camo* rosaries are currently needed by our recipients.

Twine colors listed above have been approved for rosaries used by troops outside the wire.  Other shades of tan/gold cord are NOT suitable for our recipients.  If you have already made cord rosaries in black or other military colors, we can refer you to some other groups which collect them for our troops.

Thank You    from a Battalion Chaplain:

Greetings from Afghanistan!  Accept our deep appreciation and gratitude for the rosary beads and care packages we have received, as well as your continued support of our Marines and Sailors of 3d Battalion, 11th Marines.

Every item received is greatly appreciated and cherished.  When a Marine or Sailor receives items from caring people such as you, they are reminded of why they serve in the Armed Forces and are encouraged to press on with their daily tasks.

Serving away from home is highly stressful; spouses are separated from each other, parents are separated from their children and everyone has loved ones back home that they miss dearly.  Your thoughtfulness brightened the hearts of our Marines and Sailors.  Thank you once again for your care and support of our Nation's troops.

Please continue to keep us in your thoughts and prayers as we continue in our duties and responsibilities to our beloved country.
