Catholic Funeral & Cemetery Services (CFCS) of Colorado is dedicated to providing caring support before, during, and after the end-of-life process, thereby fulfilling our core purpose of “Filling the Void of Loss with Faith.” CFCS Colorado has partnered with Saint Raphael Counseling (a ministry of the Archdiocese of Denver Catholic Charities) to provide a Grief Support Program to the families we serve. Through this partnership, CFCS Colorado offers a tiered grief support program to meet the needs of our families and to help families navigate the journey of grief.
The Grief Support Program offers the following services to families served by CFCS Colorado through the Archdiocese of Denver Mortuary and is also open to the public as part of our community outreach.

Monthly First Friday Mass
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. The public is 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 our social media pages, as well as on the First Friday webpage (below the "Future Dates" section), next to the date of the Mass
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.
Deacon Calling Project
The grief journey can be a difficult spiritual path for many. Deacons from the Archdiocese of Denver call the families served through our mortuary for several weeks after their loved ones' services. During these calls, the Deacons check in with and pray for the families, as well as discussing additional supportive resources. If additional spiritual guidance is needed, families will be referred to their local parish.
