Pray the Rosary every day, in order to obtain peace for the world, and the end of the war.
These were the words of Our Lady on May 13, 1917 to the three children in Fatima. One hundred years later, her command is still relevant.
The Nugents, a local family from St. Catherine’s of Sienna parish in Wake Forest, started making simple mission rosaries years ago. The youngest children would string the beads until they were old enough to join their older siblings in knotting the cords. Eventually, Mr. Nugent tried his hand at making chain link rosaries and they branched out into repairing rosaries for friends. Then, a friend asked if they could make a personalized rosary. That request was the catalyst for Divine Decades, an Etsy shop. Now this devoted Catholic family continues making rosaries together which are available for purchase.
We prayerfully make our rosaries! We pray that the rosaries we make, those who pray with them and those prayed for with them are blessed! – the Nugents
Since that first request for a personalized rosary, Divine Decades has added decade bracelets and Seven Sorrows chaplets. They are also willing to make custom rosaries and prayer jewelry designs based on customer requests.
Divine Decades is giving away a beautiful, hand-made rosary to one lucky (and very blessed) winner. The rosary features the words Faith, Hope and Love. It is made with 8mm oblong white plastic beads with a silver centerpiece and crucifix. The rosary measures approximately 15.5in full length.

Details: Winner will be selected at random on Fri, Mar 31st and announced on the IBT Facebook Page. The Rosary will be shipped (free) to the winner.
