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, crafted from fine solid pine veneer, is prayerfully lined and finished by the sisterhood.

 

The casket features fully removeable upper and lower lids, which are secured with antique-finished pins.  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.

 

Your purchase helps to support the life of our monastery.
