Saint Roch is the patron saint of epidemics and the plague. He was marked with a red cross on his chest at birth. St. Roch devoted his life to helping the plague-stricken and sick. His miraculous powers cured many with the Sign of the Cross. He is also the patron saint of dogs.
This fine replica is cast in solid bronze using the lost wax method and produced in the U.S.A.
Please contact me if you would like a different length chain. The medal is 3/4 inch.
A Holy Moments Original piece..
Thank you for visiting my Holy Moments Etsy Shop! This has been my personal shopping account on Etsy for years. I recently decided to open an Etsy shop and display a selection of products from my established Holy Moments on-line and show company (HolyMoments.com).
The artisan jewelry and rosaries are unique to Holy Moments. Many pieces are only a few of a kind due to limited availability of certain gemstones or hand cast items. New, exciting products are always being added to both the Etsy shop and company website.
A portion of profits are donated to the Cancer Research Institute in New York, a leader in immunotherapy research. Please read my shop story for more.
