Arimathea Pallbearer Ministry

The U of D Jesuit St. Joseph of Arimathea Pallbearer Ministry serves mostly the poor and indigent by carrying deceased men and women, who have little or no family, to their final place of rest. 

This ministry is open to Juniors and Seniors and serves the metropolitan community by offering a corporal work of mercy by assisting at a funeral. Members are trained for the role of someone who prays and assists by serving as a pallbearer, a student role accompanied by adult companions from among the faculty and staff.  Most, if not all, of our volunteer service will be during school hours.  If you have questions, contact Mr. Rick Mazyck in Campus Ministry and Service Office.

The ministry is named after the man who buried Jesus Christ, St. Joseph of Arimathea.
