An Awesome Teenage Ministry Named After St. Joseph of Arimathea

High School Pallbearers
by Mary Ellen Pellegrini

In Cleveland, OH, you can find the St. Joseph of Arimathea Pallbearer Ministry at St. Ignatius H.S.  Many junior and senior boys from this school volunteer to serve as pallbearers for those who have died without any family or friends left behind to help carry their coffins.  What a wonderful ministry ... and such a perfect idea to name it after St. Joseph of Arimathea!

After this, Joseph of Arimathea, secretly a disciple of Jesus for fear of the Jews, asked Pilate if he could remove the body of Jesus.  And Pilate permitted it.  So he came and took his body. 
- John 19:38
