'Rosary Man,' now in his 90s, still prays Hail Mary

Charles Jacobs watches students graduate with rosary in hand
A photo taken just after Christmas shows "Rosary Man" Charles Jacobs looking just like one of the family of writer Frances Maddalozzo. With him are Frances's sister Sister Antoniana, Frances's children Dominic and Joseph, and a second Sister of Life, Sister Marita. Frances Maddalozzo / Special to The B.C. Catholic.
Frances Maddalozzo recently contributed this story to The B.C. Catholic about Charles "The Rosary Man" Jacobs:
As May ends, the month of Our Blessed Virgin Mary, I want to remind readers of The B.C. Catholic about a friend of mine, Charles Jacobs, now 92, referred to by The B.C. Catholic over the last decade as the "Rosary Man."

In the past 10 years or so Jacobs has donated about 10,000 rosaries to Catholic high school graduates all over our diocese. Many thousands of people have seen him attending graduations with his daughter Carrie, who is blind, as he humbly watches the graduates each receive a rosary.
