The NAIN Ministry at Our Lady of the Rosary Catholic Church is an endeavor to comfort those mourning the passing of a loved one. Through ministry to them we hope to ease the burden of their grief, as well as bring them closer to the Lord through the understanding that death is NOT the end of life, but a change of life. The ministry is two-fold. It involves assisting the bereaved in preparation for the funeral and during the funeral and contacting the bereaved family member through a series of letters sent over a 13 month time period. If there is a living spouse of the loved one who passed away our bereavement minister is responsible for meeting the bereaved spouse and making an initial visit soon after the funeral and then sending out the letters to the bereaved. The visit consists of being a willing listener, praying with and for the bereaved and the deceased.
