English:
This 1888 chapel, designed by William Critchlow Harris, Jr., is a masterful example of High Victorian Gothic Revival architecture in Canada. Its robust design is distinguished by rough textures in rust-red Prince Edward Island sandstone and by deep-set hooded windows. Inside, a profound sense of religious mystery has been created by the complex decorative scheme. It features a dramatic chancel arch, rich carvings, beautifully patterned encaustic tiles, subdued lighting and eighteen exquisite mural paintings by the artist Robert Harris, brother of the architect.
French:
Cette chapelle, construite en 1888 d'après des plans de William Critchlow Harris Jr, illustre de façon magistrale le style néo-gothique de l'apogée victorien au Canada. Elle présente un aspect solide, avec des textures rugueuses en grès rouge de l'Île-du-Prince-Édouard et des fenêtres profondes surmontées de larmiers. L'intérieur dégage une atmosphère mystique créée par un décor complexe, dont un imposant arc-triomphal, de riches sculptures, des carreaux encaustiques à magnifiques motifs, un éclairage tamisé et dix-huit remarquables peintures murales réalisées par l'artiste Robert Harris, frère de l'architecte.
