Brother Reginald Udouj (Subiaco Academy class of 1979) is from Fort Smith, Arkansas, and is presently completing seminary studies for the priesthood at St. John's School of Theology in Collegeville, Minnesota. Brother Reginald's speciality is known as "knotted rosaries" that are made with heavy duty nylon and are perfect for long term usage. He told us that he first learned to make rosaries from his Aunt Terry Olsen at the Christ the King Carnival in Fort Smith, Arkansas. She would sit at the Quilt Raffle and spend hours making them. He learned the knots from her, and then he won a DVD on how to make the double "Stranded Rosaries" on a radio game show. After countless hours of practice, his brother monks can attest that he is now a skilled artist in what he makes. As he mentioned, "It is a nice hobby to have for those times when I need to slow down and just enjoy the quiet." Today, his hobby has turned into sought-after rosaries that are sturdy and perfect for regular use, but also quite light-weight compared to the normal rosaries one might carry in their pocket. Our Subiaco Academy students especially like the blue and orange knotted rosaries because they are the colors of the school.
Unless otherwise requested, each rosary will be blessed by one of our Benedictine priests before shipping.
