"With one hand reward, with the other punishment. We must decide which to give."

The Ministry has undergone vast and recent change in the way it operates. With the sudden absence of Ashna Kov'Gra'Sek the leadership fell to Ventare Seymour the fourth Apostle. Under his guidance it has changed emulating the Grey Lady's divine purpose rather than focusing on the Soul Stealer and his minions, this will however remain in the background as Her tenet dictates.

Judgement. Reward. Punishment.
T
hat is the Grey Lady's primary focus and thus the Ministry's.
___


Tenets of the Ministry

I. Heed the word of the Grey Lady.

II. Do not fear death, there is life beyond it.

Depending on what you consider dedicated: there is a giant shrine in the catacombs of the Blackstone cathedral. The cathedral itself is not dedicated to the Grey Lady though ;)
