Angelorum Gathering Space Addition

St. Matthew Catholic Parish

Funktion Design personnel worked with the St. Matthew Catholic Parish to design and build the Angelorum Gathering Space addition and renovations. The addition was designed to provide a welcoming space for pre-service gathering and expanded fellowship opportunities after services; multi-purpose space for classes, meetings, and pre-wedding preparations; and ADA compliant men’s, women’s, and family restrooms. The exterior of the addition was designed to include materials that would work to blend the new portion with the existing church and still lend the addition a more modern edge.
