Trappist Casket and Urn
Trappist wood caskets and urns and ceramic urns are handcrafted by the monks of New Melleray Abbey. Each casket and urn is built in the abbey’s prayerful environment and is personally blessed by one of the monks prior to shipment. A Mass is offered at the abbey for each person who has used a Trappist casket or urn and their name is inscribed in the monk’s Memorial Book. The monks also are good stewards of the Earth and the pine, oak and walnut woods used for the caskets and urns are grown at the abbey. A new tree is planted for each person who is buried in a Trappist casket.
