It is with great sadness we acknowledge the passing of our colleague the Rev. Dr. Cathi Braasch, STS. Cathi has served faithfully on the Board of Regents of the North American Lutheran Seminary as both secretary and chair of the Development Committee. Though retired after 32 years of full-time ministry, she continued in active ministry, pastoring a new NALC congregation and serving as director of mission development with Lutheran Military Veterans and Families Ministries.
Almighty God, those who die in the Lord still live with you in joy and blessedness. We give you heartfelt thanks for the grace you have bestowed upon your servant who has finished her course in faith and now rests from her labors. May we, with all who have died in the true faith, have perfect fulfillment and joy in your eternal and everlasting glory; through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
