Life is full of mystery. One of the greatest and most painful mysteries of all is the death of a child. The monks at New Melleray offer no easy explanation for so grievous a loss. In compassion and faith we accompany families into this mystery. By providing children’s caskets, made as if they were cradles, the monks’ prayer is that our children will be commended to God’s love and care forever.
All of their children’s caskets are made from wood grown in our own forest. As a loving memorial, they will plant a tree in honor of every child who is buried in one of our caskets. A special mass will be said in the child’s name.
