Prayer Ropes Made by One of Our Own at the Bookstore

If you’re in the market for a prayer rope or chotki, please come to the St. John’s Church bookstore and see the new selections that are available. Using a prayer rope has long been a tool for praying the Jesus Prayer.

If this is something that you would like to add to your Lenten observance, there is a variety of ropes made by our own Lea McKivitz that can help you to embrace this practice. She makes all of the chotkis by hand, and can even make one with customized colors if you like. (You can contact her at or 724-503-8566 if you’re interested.) They range in price from $10 to $35, depending on the size and number of knots, and you can pick them up from the bookstore. Thank you!
