Catholic Funeral Practices

Funeral Planning

We are very sorry for your loss and we understand your pain.

To make things easier for you, it is better for you to contact the funeral home first, once you meet with the funeral director, he/she will contact us directly to coordinate the funeral with the priest.

There are only two consecrated chapels in the Denver area where Masses can take place:

The chapel at Mt. Olivet and the one at St. Simeon

You may have a service at a funeral home, but not a Mass.

It is a teaching of the Church that the body has to be buried and the ashes placed in a sacred place, at Holy Trinity, we do abide by the wisdom of the teachings our Catholic Church.
