From the Gospel of Mark 15:43-47...  

""When it was already evening, since it was the day of preparation, the day before the Sabbath. Joseph of Arimathea, a distinguished member of the council, who was himself awaiting the kingdom of God, came and courageously went to Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus. Pilate was amazed that he was already dead. He summoned the centurion and asked him if Jesus had already died. And when he learned of it from the centurion, he gave the body to Joseph. Having bought a linen cloth, he took him down, wrapped him in the linen cloth and laid him in a tomb that had been hewn out of the rock. Then he rolled a stone against the entrance to the tomb. Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of Joses watched where he was laid."
 

For Mary Magdalen and her companion, Mary, the mother of Joses, it was comforting to know that someone else cared about their deceased loved one.

Come be a part of our Ministry of Arimatheans and give comfort to the family and friends of those who have died here at St. Peter's. When you attend funerals or memorial Masses, you represent the presence and support of our entire parish community. You would be notified of funerals as they are scheduled here at St. Peter's. We would encourage you to be present at as many funeral or memorial Masses as possible, but you are under no obligation to attend.  This ministry does not require fingerprinting or the Safe Environment Training.
