The monks at New Mellaray, Iowa have been making these beautiful caskets for years, and now they are offering an extraordinary offer that is truly a corporal work of mercy:

A message from the abbot…

“Where have you laid him?” Jesus asked the grieving sisters of his friend Lazarus who had died (John 11:34). The COVID-19 virus will visit many families that are financially vulnerable and unprepared. In addition to their grief, they will wonder, “Where will we lay” our loved one who has been unexpectedly taken from us.

To financially stressed families directly impacted by the COVID-19 virus the monks of New Melleray offer free of charge pine caskets made from trees from the abbey forest. Please address all your questions to our co-workers at Trappist Caskets at 888-433-6934. This offer is extended while inventory lasts. Be assured that our heartfelt prayers accompany this heartfelt response to your sorrow.
