1000 Thank you Rosary's Website

Friends, for those of you who are interested in purchasing a 1000 Thank you rosary, we have registered a domain and created a website especially to highlight and assist the Assisi Sisters, in their sale and promotion of their 1000 Thank you Rosary's,  and the many other types of Rosary's they make, design and sell. Including 60 cm Statues that they also have for Sale.

Please visit  for more information on the types made and the price including postage.

We currently do not have a catalogue of different rosary's made. We plan to build the catalogue of the different types and styles. Not all rosary’s are made in Durban, they are mostly made at various convents throughout Kwazulu Natal the Free State, we have asked the various Sisters involved for samples, to photograph them and add them to the catalogue.

Therefore we will be building the catalogue of the rosary types on a regular basis. If you like to give a really special gift or spoil yourself visit often as we will be updating the website catalogue on a regular basis.

Thank you for your support of the sisters and their endeavours.

Sr Keswa packaging 1000 Thank you Rosarys for postage to various locations world wide and some of the team.

Friends this is my dear friend Sr Keswa FSF, she is an Assisi Sister or a Member of the Daughters of St Frances. We have a cup of Coffee together most mornings and a chat, some mornings we have a small meeting to discuss the postage and related matters pertaining to the posting of Thank you Rosaries. Sr Keswa is the Mother Superior of the Convent, forget the stereo type of formidable hard and strict, the exact opposite of that, a sweet and dear soul who cares for every one who comes under her wings. Soft spoken and a lady of few words. She visits the sick at King Edward. She loves those that need love the most. By the way she can be very naughty and has a good sense of humour. Very focused with her it is prayer first..

Some of the Rosarys Sr Keswa had blessed this morning the small ones are the type currently being sold by the sisters. They find them easier to manage. In the background are the old type. Which the sisters no longer make, we found them difficult to use. They were to long and distracting because the keep falling to the floor. They only made a few and then moved on to the smaller ones which are popular.
This is Sr Marcus who is a big fan of the 1000 thank you rosary, she is always on my 'case' to say the Rosary no matter how busy I am, a dear an very close friend. One of the few people I take note when she speaks. She is the convent cook. The kitchen is her office and the kitchen table is where we often sit and chat while she prepares meals.
This is Sr Rosina also part of the team who make the Rosarys, another close friend and a sweetie pie, cant speak a word of English.A big love and a dear kind caring soul.

Viscious Gastro Doing the Rounds

This gastro doing the rounds is vicious, even more so than the one that did the rounds three or so weeks ago. Over night I went from being full of clever comments and power paraffin, to waking up feeling like I been hit by a putco bus driven by a drunk driver and no power paraffin. Not to mention the sweats and the shivers. All you will want to do is sleep. I delayed going to see the doc which turned out to be not clever. If you feel it coming on do your self a favor don't mess around get to the doc or you in for an unhappy time.

Putting out the mattresses and stuff

I don't know if you guys do this but on stinking hot days we take out every cushion and pillow we can find and put them on the the roof at the same time we also get out the mattresses and put then on other roof. We take opportunity and wash all the linen and anything else we can round up. The nice thing is when you bring this lot in it smells lovely. I try do this as often as possible when there are stinking hot days over the weekends.
