Perhaps you have seen some articles in German dealing rosaries. Here I will tell you what they are about.
The catholic mission for seafarers Stella Maris in Hamburg collects rosaries to give them to seafarers. In cooperation with the Daughters of Saint Paul SVD-Partner have asked people in Düsseldorf to give unused rosaries for Stella Maris.
Up to now many have brought rosaries so two packages have already been sent to Hamburg. The collecting box will be in the sisters‘ bookshop till the end of the year.
Everybody likes the idea that the rosary is no longer somewhere in a box but in a seafarer’s praying hand somewhere on the ocean.
