St. Gabriel is a 27,000 SF, 600-seat church located on a 42-acre wooded site in Upton, MA. The new church is the result of the collaboration of two established parishes over a six-year planning and design process. Maugel was involved in all phases of the design process from site selection and layout, to building design and construction.
The design incorporates stained glass and liturgical elements from the former churches, as well as refurbished pews from a church in the Worcester diocese. The building contains a gallery to accommodate flexible uses and fellowship, a 30-seat chapel, custom-designed liturgical furnishings, a 12-room Christian education center and an administration core. Physical and visual connections from the church to the spectacular property have been created on all four sides.
