Any Trappist Casket is suitable for use by clergy. All of our caskets have 2-piece lids that can be removed for full-couch viewing.
As an option, the name of the priest or deacon and dates of birth, ordination, and death can be engraved on a removable keepsake plaque. This plaque can be displayed on the inside of the upper lid of the #1 Premium Rectangular Casket for viewing during the wake service. With all other casket styles, the plaque can be placed on an easel for display.
Optional full-couch upholstery for the #1 Premium Rectangular Casket is available for an additional charge.
A removable Deacon Cross can be engraved on the lid, in place of the traditional keepsake cross.
* Please note – We do not offer a one-piece lid with the clergy casket.
Every human being is a treasure and each casket and urn is built to reflect the treasure it holds. Every casket, urn and cross is blessed by a monk. (our Prayers)
