Q: Will this coffin fit in a vault?

A: Yes, all our sizes are made within the limits of standard vaults.

 

Q: Can you ship a coffin directly to my funeral home?

A: Yes

 

Q: Why are you concerned about these being “organic”?

A: We seek to have no preservatives in an Orthodox burial so that the body may decompose at the natural rate that God has ordained. In Orthodox tradition, it is important that we return our deceased to the earth as soon as possible so that in doing so, we show our respect to God by giving Him back what He created.

 

Q: Do you make urns?

A: No. As St. Paul says, Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit? (I Cor. 6:19). For this reason, cremation is unacceptable for Orthodox. By burning our deceased, we take upon ourselves the liberty to destroy what God created. Cremation is a revived pagan practice that has never been accepted by the Church.
