St. Simeon Catholic Cemetery
St. Simeon Catholic Cemetery, a ministry of the Archdiocese of Denver, was blessed on April 22, 2004 by Archbishop Charles J. Chaput, O.F.M. Cap., culminating several years of careful planning to bring a Catholic cemetery to the growing, east metro Denver region. Archbishop Chaput named the cemetery for St. Simeon, a man of the Holy Spirit. Simeon was told he would not see death until he had met the Messiah promised to the people of God. In the second chapter of Luke’s gospel, that upon seeing the Christ child enter the temple, Simeon took the baby Jesus in his arms and proclaimed, “Now I can die content! For I have seen the Savior you have given to the world.”
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 caring 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 are blessed with abundant wildlife here in our rural setting, including deer, hawks, owls, and coyotes. Please be aware of the potential hazards associated with some of these indigenous creatures as you visit the property.
We offer full cemetery services to include standard casket and cremated ground burials, 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.
