Monastery Caskets 
(Temporarily out of stock)
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 an honest, simple solid wood casket, more affordable than the average funeral industry's mass-produced casket, our monastery caskets may be for you.

Each casket is lovingly lined and finished out by the sisters and includes a Cross of your choice, mattress and pillow.

Please note: CA tax (if applicable) and shipping/delivery are not included in the listed prices.
