The parish plans to start an Arimathea Ministry. This ministry is named for Joseph of Arimathea who took Jesus' body from the cross and buried it in his own tomb. Those who sign up for this Ministry are volunteering to attend the funeral Mass of parishioners when they are able. You would be notified when there is a funeral in the church and if you are able, you would attend and would be representing the St. Joan of Arc Parish family and supporting the family of the deceased by your presence.
If you are often available during the day and could sometimes attend a funeral in the parish, please consider volunteering. It would be a prime opportunity to practice one of the Corporal Works of Mercy: To bury the dead. If interested or if you have questions, please contact us.
