Monastery Caskets
One of the ways by which our monastery supports itself is through our casket ministry. Our solid natural wood caskets are skillfully and prayerfully made by talented local Orthodox woodworkers. For those looking for a simple solid wood casket, handmade with care, that is more affordable that what is available at most funeral homes, our monastery caskets may be for you. Each casket is finished out by the sisters and includes a Cross, muslin-covered mattress and pillow.

Custom-sized caskets available upon request.

We ship within the US by freight and can arrange for local delivery or pickup. Please allow for a delivery time of 4-7 days and contact us for a shipping quote.

Even though we will do our best to fulfill a rush order, we encourage parishes and individuals to order and store a casket in advance of the need. 

We would be glad to accommodate your request for a custom casket-- whether a custom-sized casket, a casket made from a specific species of wood, etc.-- with sufficient advanced notice.

We are a small but earnest operation and we appreciate your consideration of our ministry. 

Each casket purchase helps support the life of our growing monastic community.

To place an order or for additional information, feel free to email us at or call us at 805.921.1563.
I am the Resurrection and the Life. He who believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live.-- John 15:25
