The Glavin Family Chapel is a sanctuary for Babson community members to practice their religious faith, seek inspiration and guidance, and find peace in the quiet of a sacred place. Glavin-Chapel.jpg

Capacity

150 guests. Additional seating may be added outside if needed.

Furnishings

The main sanctuary has 150 chairs, 4 arm chairs, podium (39” high), small table (30” high, 28.5”x 28.5” top), and table/altar/bimah (39” high, 69”x 42” top). These furnishings may not be removed from the main sanctuary.

Music

A Rodgers 751 Classic Organ is available for use by a professional organist. The Chapel is equipped with an audio system that includes a compact disc player, tape player, microphone, and piano.

Clergy/Officiant​

It is the bride/groom’s responsibility to arrange for a member of the clergy or other officiant to perform their religious ceremony. Please note that Roman Catholic ceremonies have special guidelines established by the Archdiocese of Boston for weddings performed in non-parish settings. Some individuals must register with the Secretary of State in order to solemnize marriages in Massachusetts. Please check with your clergy member to insure that these guidelines are met.

Parking

The driveway leading to the Glavin Family Chapel may be used for the wedding couple’s transportation and temporary parking for loading/unloading set-up materials (e.g. flowers, musical instruments).

Event guests and participants may use Trim parking lot. Handicapped parking is available in the Trim or Hollister lots.

Event Assistant

Babson College will provide a student Event Assistant to assist with Chapel preparations. Your assistant will contact you one month prior to the event and will be present at the rehearsal and the ceremony to assist with preparations.

Flowers and Decorations

Decorations for the Glavin Family Chapel (flowers and bows) must be attached with elastic bands or string. Tape, thumbtacks, or wire may not be used because they damage the furnishings. Please inform the florist of this. Throwing confetti, rice, or birdseed is not permitted.
