About The Rosary Team
The Rosary Team is a non profit 501(c)(3) started in 2019 at a memory care facility in Boulder County, Colorado. Teresa, the founder, was working as a hospice nurse when she, along with her patients, family members, and their caregivers, noticed many entertainment options for residents but minimal spiritual support. This discussion inspired the creation of The Rosary Team.
Parishioners from several local churches volunteered to lead the rosary with the residents at the facility starting one day a week. Family members began requesting the team to come in more often, which led to 3 days per week, and the expansion into many other nursing facilities happened afterward. Volunteers pray in pairs forming a team at each elder care facility to spiritually minister to the residents.
Sometimes these seniors feel like a burden when they can no longer do the things they did. They need help with their physical needs and they have so much loss. They lose their homes, their physical abilities, and many of their friends and family have passed away. But they do not need to lose their relationship with God and we can walk with them on this path.
These seniors are never a burden! They can pray for peace in our world, for healing of wounds, for those that are sick or dying and many other intentions. After the rosary, the group is very peaceful, there is a remarkable difference. This is one of the gifts among many that our Blessed Mother gives to us when we pray the rosary.
Volunteers pray with seniors at care facilities nourishing the souls of both the residents and the volunteers. The goal: That all will know the powerful love of Christ.
The Rosary Team aims to become ministers of hope, bringing peace to the world and joy through hope in eternal life!
Endorsement from Archbishop Aquila
"I encourage you to prayerfully consider volunteering with this apostolate so that more of our brothers and sisters can experience the loving presence of our Lord and the Blessed Mother in their lives."

My Mom has been a prayer warrior my whole life. She made a commitment at a young age to pray the rosary daily and included her family in this devotion. She gathered my Dad and my four brothers every evening to lead the family rosary, even during our teen years. That itself seems heroic to me because we were not always the most responsive bunch to this commitment. My Mom's daily intentions were for "peace in the world, an end to abortion, and for nonbelievers" and a consecration for her children and grandchildren to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. She attended daily Mass and taught us that the world is passing, and we are made for something much greater: eternal life.
The Rosary Team is a group of compassionate volunteers who pray the rosary in pairs in nursing homes.

Will You Become a Patron of The Rosary Team to Financially Support This Ministry?
The Rosary Team has placed almost 300 volunteers in over 100 facilities who, together, pray over 30,000 rosaries a year.
Yet dozens of volunteers await to be placed and many more residents await their own Rosary Team to gather them in prayer, offering their rosaries up for the salvation of souls.
The up front cost to establish a single rosary team is $250.
I am asking you to prayerfully consider a monthly contribution of $21 to establish a rosary team.
