“Our Lady’s Rosary Text Vigil Group”
NEWLY REVISED (…and growing)
And full of Life !!!!

My Friends,

Our group has been revamped and full circle back to our original hour. So the time that we unite and Pray The Rosary together is 9:00pm EST. I figured I’d write this update trying to have all your questions and thoughts you might like answered. I hope this is helpful.

Many have asked and many have inquired. I did have another blog when I was on the road at night driving. So today I have put together a blog fully explaining this wonderful group we have in its current position. Our hope, our intention is to continue growing in unity; so that more and more of us can unite and pray together each evening Monday through Friday. What I have listed below is a bunch of question, some have asked of me and others fill the gaps of explanation. I hope this very helpful and I hope that you to consider joining with us each evening.

Monday – Friday at 9:00 PM EST.

Started in the Spring of 2009
Founded by: Jim Dacey Jr & Jan Martinez

How did Our Lady’s Rosary Text Vigil Group begin?
Jan Martinez and I have been friends for a very long time. Back in 2009 her husband Dan had to go away for training for his job. So Jan called me and asked if could chat with her to help pass the time each night; Jan don’t like being home alone. I agreed and we did that for a couple nights. Then I thought, “Hey why don’t we Pray The Rosary together during this time each night?” Jan was thrilled with the idea and so we began to do just that. Then when Dan returned home, I told Jan, “I will text you when I am about to begin my Rosary, just text me back if you can begin to, if not text me what time is best.” And so began our text group…

How did others learn of this and wish to join?
The days following our Rosary, Jan and I would speak of our intentions and what happened during that time of prayer. Eventually others started reading this saying, “Hey, I didn’t see a Rosary posted last night, what are you guys talking about? How can I be part of that?” And so little by little we have grown in devout individuals interested in praying with us in this most unique (fun) intriguing way.

What is it we do?
Monday through Friday night we pray the 9pm EST (Eastern Standard Time) Rosary.

How do we communicate?
I Jim (Rosary Man) Dacey Jr. personally text our members a reminder at 8:30 in preparation for our 9pm start time. Some reply, but replying isn't necessary.

What is the message I text?
“ROSARY TIME: As a member of (Our Lady’s Rosary Text Vigil Group) I personally invite you to PRAY THE ROSARY with us at 9pm EST. God Bless +JMJ+”

Do you send this text to any other place?
Yes 2 places. 1 goes to our Facebook group in the private message area, because those in that part of group, either don’t have a cell phone to receive a text or they are outside the US. I found out recently that my phone can text internationally as long as I get texted by you first. And the second place I post a similar invitation is on my Facebook Ministry wall.  OPEN INVITATION to all…

What is the message I send to the Ministry Wall?
>> Our Lady’s Rosary Text Vigil Group <<
Please join us when we Pray The Rosary together at 9pm EST. If you’d like to receive a personal invitation text each day (Mon-Fri) from me… text me (full name – city, state, country-Rosary) –from anywhere for personal texts from Me (570) 618-3635. (International Code: 001) I send out an invitation just prior to our beginning at 10am and then a Thank You text when we are done. Please consider joining us.

What online or internet links do you recommend?

What kind of communication occurs between everyone?
Sometimes I (Jim Dacey Jr) receive a prayer request text. Sometimes I will post them requests on our online post that I also post with all the texts I send out.

How do I end the Rosary session?
I send out a Thank you text.

What does that text say?
“THANK YOU for joining us, it’s always so wonderful when we get to Pray The Rosary especially as unique as this. Have a Blessed evening and God Bless you.”

Who can join with us?
Everyone of cause...

Where are you (Jim Dacey Jr) when you do all this?
