Our History

St. Gabriel's was the dream of two visionary communities. Members of St. Mary's Sparta under the guidance of Fr. Harold Shaffer sought to establish a mission in Milton/Oak Ridge. At the same time Rev. Gerard Pisani, Jr. of the Community Church of Jefferson informed Bishop Leland Stark of his desire to become an Episcopal Priest. In 1965 Rev. Pisani was accepted and with members from both St. Mary's and the Community Church , the mission was begun.

In 1968 St. Gabriel's was established, the sanctuary was erected in 1971 and the outdoor chapel was built in 1984. In 1990 the vicar's home adjacent to the Church was completed.
