The ministry of Arimatheans is to attend funerals,
witnessing to the life of the deceased parishioner and
providing support to the family. Some of our funerals
are very small because parishioners have outlived their
friends and even some of their family members. The
presence of the Arimatheans is a great support to
families. Arimatheans attend funerals when they can;
there is no attendance requirement.
If you are interested in this ministry,
Sr. M. Colleen
at the office
941-624-3799 or by
and leave your name, e-mail address or phone
number. You will receive notice of a
funeral/service when few are expected to
attend. You are NOT required to
attend...just show up if you can.
Thank you for considering this work of
Christian charity and mercy.
