Precious Lives Burial

The loss of a child in pregnancy or at birth is a very difficult time for families. Parents often have many questions including how to care for the bodily remains of the child. Catholic Funeral & Cemetery Services of Colorado ministers to families during this time of need. Children who were lost during a pregnancy or at birth are welcomed into our care for placement into one of our Catholic Cemeteries at no cost to the family. As a ministry of the Catholic Archdiocese of Denver, we live our vocational call of the Corporal Work of Mercy to Bury the Dead. No matter if families are Catholic, Protestant, another faith tradition, or of no faith, we serve all families.

Please call us at 303.502.9666 after experiencing the unexpected loss of your precious child.
