For over 60 years, through three generations of our family, Lewis & Company has been the leading supplier of rosary making parts to individuals, schools, churches and businesses. William J. Lewis and Stephen V. Lewis founded our company in 1950 in Troy, NY, after identifying the need for rosary supplies among many Catholic parishioners. Stephen V. Lewis III took over as president in 1985 and was later joined by his wife Joan, as Director of Marketing and Sales.
The company has come a long way. We now stock hundreds of designs of crucifixes, centerpieces, rosary beads, rosary cases and rosary making findings in many different metals including sterling silver, gold filled, pewter, base metal and cord. Our beads include a large offering of Swarovski Austrian Crystals as well as beads from Czechoslovakia, Japan and the United States.
We have tens of thousands of customers who enjoy making rosaries for many different reasons. Our customers make hundreds of thousands of Mission Rosaries which are sent to missions and/or troops around the world. Most of these are donated through The Family Rosary in North Easton, MA.
Today our customers purchase rosary materials for many reasons: Baptisms, First Communion, Confirmation, Weddings, Easter, Christmas, Birthdays, Anniversaries, etc. They find our wide selection, as well as our fully equipped engraving department, allows them to make personalized rosaries for their loved ones.
Establishing our original internet presence in 1999, we now have customers from around the world visiting our online store which is open 24 hours a day. We have customers in Australia, Japan, Spain, Canada, United States, Argentina, Brazil, Columbia, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Honduras, Ireland, Italy, Luxemburg, Panama, Peru, Philippines, Puerto Rico, Singapore, Venezuela, Mexico, New Zealand and many other countries.
I am proud to be the third generation of my family running our business. Along with my wife and our dedicated staff, we will work to maintain our excellent service and to continue to enhance our product line.
