About Stella Maris Beads
Stella Maris Beads began when Catherine Miller, owner, had to learn how to repair rosaries after her Great Dane/lab mix dog, Halas, would pull her rosaries off her nightstand and chew them. Picking up the pieces of remaining beads, centerpiece and crucifix, she watched YouTube videos to learn how to piece the rosary back together. This grew to doing repairs for friends and making rosaries for friends and fundraisers.
Repairing rosaries soon led to her buying broken vintage rosaries and restoring them to their original beauty. Catherine does not sell rosaries online but rather at Catholic conferences where she is assured the rosaries are in the hands of those who will use them for what they’re intended…to pray the rosary. The Event schedule on the menu bar indicates when and where Catherine will be onsite at a conference doing repairs and selling rosaries and vintage holy medals.
Catherine donates rosaries for the Pilgrim Statue of Our Lady of Fatima at St. Michael the Archangel Catholic Church, which promotes the daily praying of the rosary.
