Maybe us Catholics here can form a prayer group and at a certain hour of the day or night, we all say our rosaries in our home. Even though we are not together we are in heart. Maybe some are already doing this, I dont know?
Just got back from our dog/rosary walk (no the dogs don't yet recite!:):)), but my husband's confessor suggested we get at least one a day recited "together" to get our kids back in the pews, and it's always a great idea to have a prayer group reciting as you say. Maybe you or another organized FReeper (I'm not all that oganized!) can come up with a time, plan, etc. and I sure will follow. I currently use my own site that I put together (link)
, but Fr. Corapi has a great site as well ... (link)
, and I'm sure there are others that folks like to use. (Someone on Free Republic kindly gave me a wonderful link to the Chaplet of Divine Mercy, and I included it on our site.)

Excellent suggestions, mlizzy! For the cubicle bound, like myself, I use the time driving to work to pray the rosary - for those undergoing surgery, for an increase in vocations, for my pastor and our soon to be pastor and the others in our eparchy who are being transferred right now - and that gets me to the office. During the day, I pray while walking the halls and during my lunchtime walk - for women planning an abortion that they will turn around and go home and save the lives of their children, for the victims of abortion, for the dying who are alone with no one to pray for them ... and the list goes on and on. Each week our parish features the name of a parish family and asks that we pray for them and their intentions. EVERY DAY, I offer up a decade of the rosary for the souls in purgatory and then there are my permanent lists - my family and friends (living and deceased), for those who have asked for my prayers and those unsolicited which I have added as well. BTW - I have asked my guardian angel to keep track of these names because the lists have grown so large that I can no longer remember all of them :-)
As for a specific time of day, I again go along with mlizzy. Our Lord asked through St. Faustina that the 3 o'clock hour be set aside to pray the Divine Mercy chaplet. Why not tack on the rosary at 3:30pm!
