ABBEY CHURCH | BENEDICTINE’S OF MARY, QUEEN OF APOSTLES
A place of love and light.
An ornate Abbey church is nestled in the hills of Gower, MO.
The Benedictines of Mary, Queen of Apostles called upon Straub to accommodate their growing monastery and community. Praying 3 times a day, the Sisters had a specific vision in mind for their new Abbey – a space that was so architecturally beautiful that it lifts one’s soul.
This beautiful new 13,790 SF church features ornate architecture mimicking the historic churches of Europe, boasting hand painted murals, Italian marble, groin vaulted ceilings and splayed windows.
This Abbey was a team effort.

“It was truly a pleasure to work with Straub Construction on a few projects over several years, but the best was the last, as they tackled the largest project, our Abbey Church. We are particularly grateful for their flexibility and patience in tackling this unique project, providing an exceptional management that was both professional and friendly, so as to create an atmosphere of smooth collaboration in this mission.”
