“We ordered by phone and were surprised at how quickly the casket arrived the next day – and in perfect condition. Your workmanship is truly a lost art. Praise be to God for your ministry.”

“I must also express my continuing thanks and gratefulness for the way my casket order was taken care of. From beginning to end, it was both easy and, most importantly, a moment of Christian faith and hope.”

Pamela, Chicago, IL



I ordered a simple casket for my Mother. The picture on the website doesn’t adequately convey the beauty of your work.  You could tell that loving hands put it together.  The workmanship was remarkable.  Many of our relatives and friends commented on how surprised they were by the “soft” look of this casket, compared to a metal one.  We were very pleased, and I believe my mother would have liked our choice.

“I purchased a fine casket from New Melleray Abbey for my own personal use. I offer my testimony about the hand-crafted quality of Trappist Caskets. When someone purchases a Trappist Casket, they are not only obtaining a unique piece of craftsmanship, but they are helping to sustain the spiritual power of the Abbey.”

His Eminence Cardinal Roger M. Mahony, Los Angeles, CA


“Thanks for helping me pre-arrange my casket. Your wonderful caskets embody everything a monastery product should be – honest design with respect for the materials used. Now my sons won’t have to wonder “what would Mom want?”

Jean, San Francisco, CA



“As a funeral director, it’s great to be able to offer Trappist Caskets to the families I serve. Craftsmanship such as this stands leagues apart. People come to our funeral home because they know we carry your products.”
