Windstorm Cleanup (4/08/2024)

We are receiving many inquiries as to how the cemetery did throughout last weekend's windstorm. While the winds may have died down, our work of cleaning up from this weekend's windstorm is just beginning. All our structures and mausoleums survived the wind well. Due to the fierce winds, trees and branches were knocked down. Starting early this morning, crews were on site to take care of the fallen trees and branches. They are clearing all the roads and all the debris.

We thank you for your care and concern. We ask you to continue to pray for our ministry as we will pray for you.

About Mt. Olivet

Mt. Olivet Catholic Cemetery, a ministry of the Archdiocese of Denver, was blessed on September 25, 1892 by Bishop Nicholas Matz. Since that time, over 150,000 people have been buried here and it serves, today, as a majestic and historical symbol of our faith.


According to the Catholic Church, two places are considered sacred: the physical worship space and the Catholic cemetery. It is of significant importance to the church that proper reverence be afforded to the body, not only in life, but also in death. Our compassionate cemetery staff members take great care in every aspect of the burial process to respect the sacredness of the body and the ground in which it is laid.


We offer full cemetery services which include standard casket and cremated ground burials, above-ground mausoleums, above-ground niches for cremated remains, and a full selection of grave markers.


Our caring cemetery staff stands ready to assist you with all your cemetery-related needs. We serve all faiths.
