Artisan Crafted Urns

We offer our own finely crafted wooden urns in native Walnut and Cherry.

Our Wooden Urns are designed for an individual. They are made from the highest quality wood, selected for its distinctive color and grain, and finished with a clear lacquer that enhances the beauty of the wood. Like every Trappist Casket, each finely crafted wooden urn is made in the prayerful environment of New Melleray Abbey and individually blessed by a monk. The name of your loved one is also inscribed in our Memorial book. All urns are built to industry standards.

We keep an inventory of our urns for immediate shipment. All urns cost $45 to ship ground anywhere in the U.S. Expedited shipping is available upon request.

Child Casket Fund

At New Melleray Abbey, the monks view the crafting of child caskets as a corporal work of mercy, and a way to bring some small measure of comfort to families who bear the tragedy of burying a child.
The Child Casket Fund is an opportunity for benefactors to help alleviate stress during a trying time, by eliminating the financial burden to families who are in need of a child’s casket. Donations to the fund are accepted to help defray the costs of materials and labor.

The donation of child caskets to families is an important ministry of the monks of New Melleray Abbey. The monks feel this is a small way to touch the lives of people in the outside world, while remaining true to their vocation.

Making a Donation by Mail
To donate by mail, please address your check to New Melleray Abbey – Child Casket Fund and mail to:
