Funeral Arrangements for Joe Marotta—UPDATED

Funeral Arrangements for Joe Marotta—UPDATED June 6, 2013

Joe’s parish, Holy Cross Catholic Church in Lynchburg, Virginia, posted the following late today:

Services for Joe Marotta will be as follows:
Prayer service – Sunday 7-8:30pm

Funeral Mass – Monday 2:00 with a reception and burial to follow

Holy Cross Catholic Church

710 Clay Street
Lynchburg, Virginia  24504

On her Facebook page, Joe’s wife, Katie, added a simple message: “Thank you for your many thoughts and prayers. This is such a difficult time for us.”

UPDATE: Several people have written to ask me if any sort of fund is being established for the Marotta family.  Tonight, a friend of Joe’s contacted me to say that donations should be made out to the Holy Cross Catholic Church and sent to the address above, with a note that it’s for the Marotta family.  On the Holy Cross web page, there is also information about how to take a meal to the family, or even have one delivered long-distance.
