Arimathean Ministry

The name Arimatheans comes from St. Joseph of Arimathea, who tended to our Lord after his death.

Arimatheans are caring parishioners who attend Funeral and Memorial Masses as representatives of the faith community.

We are looking to expand our group of parishioners, to perform corporal works of mercy – to “bury the dead.” If an Arimathean Minister is available for a particular Mass, he/she simply will attend the liturgy. Our presence and silent prayers provide spiritual support to the deceased and their families.

Please give this prayerful consideration, and if you are interested in joining, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator.
