Monastery Caskets - Now Available
As of February, 2015, the sisters have changed our casket design to feature only pegged lids. Pegged lids allow the viewing lid to be fully removed, in contrast to the hinged lids. For Orthodox funerals, in which the open casket is placed in the middle of the church, the pegged lid allows the congregation to gather around both sides of the casket, rather than only one. UPDATED PHOTOS COMING SOON. Our prices have increased slightly as a result of this change.
The sisters of Holy Assumption Monastery are now offering redwood and pine caskets for sale. Our brochure is available for download, or you may follow the "More Information" link below to view photos, details, and pricing.
