Notre Dame Celebrate Life Ministry is selling rosaries handcrafted by the Maasai women from the O’Brien School in Tanzania. These rosaries would make beautiful Mother’s Day, First Communion, graduation or wedding gifts and feature Our Lady of Guadalupe, Patroness of the Unborn, to help us pray for the protection of all life. 
Making Rosaries
The widowed women of the Maasai are left with nothing when their husbands die. For the first time, this rosary project provides the women with the opportunity to earn money for their efforts, allowing them to help their children receive an education and to purchase food in the market instead of trading firewood for bags of rice.
All proceeds will support the women of the O’Brien School for the Maasai and Aid for Women crisis pregnancy centers. 
Please send the following information to Mimsie O’Hara at

Once we receive your order we will contact you to arrange for delivery of the rosary(ies) to your front door. Checks should be made payable to: The O’Brien School for the Maasai. Suggested donation for each rosary is $45
