Through this partnership, CFCS of Colorado offers a tiered grief support program to meet the needs of our families and to help families navigate the journey of grief.
The following services are offered to families served by CFCS of Colorado through the Archdiocese of Denver Mortuary.
o Understand your experience of grief
o Distinguish between grief, depression, and traumatic stress
o Understand the elements of grief and apply to a one’s personal journey
o Develope strategies to help cope with grief
For more than 100 years, Mount Olivet has had the tradition of holding a Mass on the first Friday of the month to pray for all those individuals in our care at our various cemeteries. Individuals are invited to join us at 6:30 PM on the first Friday of the month at the Mount Olivet Chapel for this special Mass. Families are also able to view the Mass through a livestream. Links for each month’s livestream will be listed on the First Friday Mass webpage below the Future Dates section next to the individual date as well as our social media sites.
Accompanying the Mass will be a scrolling video listing all the individuals who have come into the care of the Archdiocese of Denver Mortuary during the past month.
All are invited to take part in this monthly Mass.
The grief journey can be a difficult path spiritually for many. Deacons from the Archdiocese of Denver, call the families we serve through the Archdiocese of Denver Mortuary several weeks following the services for their loved ones. During these calls, the deacons will check in with the family, pray with the family, and discuss additional resources that are available to families. If additional spiritual support is necessary, families will be referred to their local parish for this additional support.
