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.
As a non-profit ministry of the Archdiocese of Denver, we are committed to offering innovative programs that provide financial assistance, FREE options, and unique programs that meet the needs of our local community.
