St Joseph of Arimathea was a wealthy disciple of Jesus who asked for his body from Pontius Pilate after his crucifixion (John 19:38). St Joseph laid the body of Jesus in the tomb he had purchased for himself, thus serving as the perfect model for this ministry. The web address for the Society is the 14th Station, after the fourteenth station in the Stations of the Cross where Jesus is laid in the tomb purchased by St Joseph of Arimathea.
By contributing $250, Companions of St Joseph are patrons of the society and continue his witness by providing a tomb for a child of God. After completing the form, you will be contacted with information regarding sponsoring a tomb.
