• A Life of Prayer

    Trappist Caskets are handcrafted at New Melleray Abbey, the Catholic monastery built by our order more than 160 years ago in the heartland of America. The same old-world craftsmanship and sense of sacred ministry, which constructed our stone buildings and has helped maintain our quiet life of constant prayer, work and simplicity, goes into every Trappist casket.

  • Reverence for Nature

    As Trappists, we are committed to faithful stewardship of God’s natural creation. Our caskets are made from as much wood as we can responsibly harvest from our own carefully managed forest, obtaining the rest from like-minded sources. As part of this sacred ministry, we plant a tree as a living memorial to each person who is buried in a Trappist Casket.


  • A Sacred Blessing

    We view casket making as a corporal work of mercy. Every casket and urn is blessed by a monk. We also offer a Mass in remembrance of each person who uses one of our blessed vessels for their final repose and inscribe their name into our Memorial Book.

  • Immediate Delivery

    Aware of the need to be responsive, we maintain an inventory of caskets and urns for immediate shipment. Delivery arrangements can be made with a phone call, including next day delivery for urgent needs. Arrangements can also be made if you wish to pre-plan your purchase.
