For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ, all shall be made alive. -- 1 Corinthians 15:22

Our monastery caskets are simple and beautiful.  Each casket is crafted from solid pine, and is prayerfully finished out by the sisterhood.  Our brochure is available for download.  Your purchase helps to support the life of our monastery.

 

The casket features pegged lids, which are fully removable.  For Orthodox funerals, in which the open casket is placed in the middle of the church, the viewing lid may be removed allowing the congregation to gather around both sides of the casket.
