Joseph of Arimathea Society
Trinity High School’s St. Joseph of Arimathea Society recognizes the dignity of all people by serving as pallbearers at the burials of people in Louisville who were homeless or otherwise economically impoverished.
Since 2006, Trinity has ministered at the burials to serve as witnesses to the lives of the deceased, listening ears to those friends and family who are left behind, as well as to do the physical work of carrying the casket and saying prayers at the service. The burials take place at MeadowView Cemetery in Valley Station and are overseen by Buddy Dumeyer at the County Coroner’s office.
The St. Joseph of Arimathea Society attends burials whenever we are asked, even during the summer and school year breaks. All burials take place during the school day at 10 a.m., noon or 2 p.m., and students attending must both miss class and make up the work later.
If a student is interested in joining, he must complete a permission form before having his name placed on a rotation list. When his name comes up, he has the option of either going or waiting for another chance. Most students are able to attend one or two burials throughout the course of the academic school year.
Students from Henry County High School visited Trinity to film a feature on the Joseph of Arimathea Society. Watch their award-winning film:
