About Us...

"The best evangelical strategy is one that moves from the beautiful to the good and finally to the true." -Bishop Robert Barron 

Our Mission....

At Fount of Grace our mission is to create beautiful heirloom-quality rosaries. Through their beauty, we hope to encourage devotion to the rosary, to honor Our Lady and our Lord, and through prayer, to lead the soul to an ever deeper intimacy with God and a greater understanding and observance of the truths of our faith.

Our Commitment to Quality...

We began hand-crafting our devotionals years ago, and are committed to using the highest quality materials including semi-precious gemstones, Swarovski and Czech beads, and vintage center pieces, crucifixes and medals. Many pieces are cast from antiques and made of solid bronze or .925 sterling silver. We also carry a few rosaries fashioned with plated metal to offer our customer a more affordable price range.

Customization...

Because our devotionals are hand-crafted, we can work with you to create a custom piece. Please use the "Contact Us" menu option or "Contact Us" button below to submit your request.  We would be honored to work with you.

Our Beginnings....

The Rosary has long been an important devotion in my daily prayer life, however, we conceived the idea for Fount of Grace when our eldest daughter and her cousin announced their desire to attend World Youth Day in Madrid in 2011. World Youth Day is a “world meeting place” of young-adult Catholics, who come together approximately every two years, to pray, to share in the Church teachings, and to experience the universality of the Catholic Church. Our daughters’ desire seemed inspired, but unlikely, considering the fact that it overlapped with the first week of their senior year in high school, and that the expense added to their already costly and looming tuition bills. Onto this scene entered my sister, the eternal optimist and recent convert to the Catholic Church—you know—the “super-on-fire and full-of-zeal” type! In her usual can-do style, she told me, “We’re going to make rosaries as a fundraiser.  If Our Lady wants them to go, we will raise the money!” I was a bit skeptical, yet when the girls were given permission to miss their first week of school, I took that as a sign. Over the next year, we created and sold enough rosaries to fund their travel to Madrid. This of course ignited the five younger cousins to take their rosary-making seriously! Since 2010, the girls have created hundreds of rosaries and all seven had the privilege of attending World Youth Day (Madrid 2011, Rio de Janeiro 2013, and Krakow 2016). Each has returned with a new and deeper understanding of their faith and the Catholic Church.

Though the girls went off to college, our customers continued to ask for rosaries, and thus, Fount of Grace was born. We thank you for your interest in our boutique store and we look forward to working with you and providing you with an heirloom devotional which meets your heart’s desire, both now and in eternity!

May God Bless You!
