Where can i get a catholic rosary

Hello Everyone,
One of my friend has been searching since last 2 weeks to buy a rosary to gift it to her mother. Where in zurich do i direct her to get one..(She was talking about some glass beaded one).She would be going back to her homecountry this weekend so there is no time to go all the way to Rome..

Go to Einsiedeln. The monastery has a shop where they sell quite a lot of them.

Re: Where can i get a catholic rosary

I walk past "Das Haus der Bibel" on Stockerstrasse 46 on my commute and they seem to have all sorts of religious stuff in there. You could ask and see if they stock any. Also maybe one of those big churches in Zurich has a gift shop that sells them?

Re: Where can i get a catholic rosary

I second Einsiedeln. Zurich is not a catholic canton so I doubt that it will be easy to find one in Zurich. At least I have never seen a shop selling them. All the major churches in Zurich are protestant and therefore will not sell rosaries.

Re: Where can i get a catholic rosary

You could go to a local catholic church and simply ask the priest. I've gotten most of the rosaries in my life that way. Sometimes they ask for a "donation", but that's fine.

Re: Where can i get a catholic rosary

I second Einsiedeln. They have a hige shop with lots of different types of devotional materials in all different qualities and price ranges.

Closer to Zurich, there is a shop on Langstrasse called "El Cuco" or something like that that has all sorts of devotional stuff in the shop window. I guess they must also sell it, but I've never gone inside myself.

Re: Where can i get a catholic rosary

I know it's not so close to Zürich but I got one when I was visiting a few years ago at Mariastein and had it blessed for my mother. I went again more recently, prior to a planned trip to the US, and got a medal and had it blessed for myself. (I mention the blessing so that you know that if you choose, it can be done there as well.)

Re: Where can i get a catholic rosary

cha1, I would also advise you Einsiedeln. They have a big choice and you have the possibility to get it blessed.

For religious people, the fact that the rosary has been blessed is an important thing. And the trip is really worth it, because it's a beautiful monastery

Peg A's solution sounds also good

Re: Where can i get a catholic rosary

there are no religious stores near you? shame you need it so quick- i make them (and get them blessed at my local church) for family members, baptisms, etc. and i would have sent you one!

also, check larger cathedrals (there must be some in zurich???), usually they'll have a small shop or at least know where to buy one. good luck!

Re: Where can i get a catholic rosary

A self-made rosary could be a nice gift. What about a ring-rosary?

No there really aren't.
I guess Einsiedeln is the nearest cathedral-type place (and I know they have quite a big choice of different designs so you'll be sure to find something suitable).

That, or as somebody else said, talk to a priest.

Re: Where can i get a catholic rosary

Rosaries have been banned in our local schools here in the US, as they are used as Gang Symbols. The use of Rosaries as gang symbols has now spread to the UK.

Herr Ratzinger doesn't like his followers to be called a gang.

Re: Where can i get a catholic rosary

Thankyou for all the responses. Just thought of providing an update on this thread incase someone needs to get one at Zurich . I was surprised to find rosaries at the Apotheke next to C&A shop at Oerlikon. Infact there were other religious statues in that Apotheke as well

Is that back-up in case the medication doesn't work..?
