Abbey Caskets, a division of Saint Meinrad Archabbey, will host a public open house from 10 a.m. CDT to 3 p.m. CDT Oct. 3. The workshop is located in St. Meinrad along Indiana 545, just south of the Archabbey Gift Shop.

Tours of the workshop will be given, caskets and urns will be on display, and refreshments will be available. The public is also welcome to join the monks for Mass at 9:30 a.m., visit the Gift Shop and attend the rosary pilgrimage at nearby Monte Cassino Shrine at 2 p.m.
