Why Do Catholics “Go to Rosaries” When Someone Dies?

Question:

I have heard of Catholics "going to rosaries" for people who have died. Could you tell me what is meant by this?

Answer:

When a Catholic dies, his friends and family often gather together to pray the rosary for the repose of his soul. Saying that one is “going to a rosary” is a shorthand way of saying that someone is gathering with other people in order to pray a rosary together.
