Friars Praying the Office of the Dead at Mt. Olivet Cemetery in 2011
As has become a custom among the friars in Denver, and elsewhere, members of the Mid-America province visit the graves of deceased friars and sisters. The Capuchin Friars and their Poor Clare sisters have a special plot at Mt. Olivet where members of their Orders are laid to rest near other priests and religious of the diocese.
“Eternal rest grant unto them O’ Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May they rest in peace! Amen.”
