All Souls' Chapel, built in 1888, can be seen nestled in behind the trees in this Google street view photo. The chapel, which is attached to St. Peter's Cathedral Anglican church at the corner of All Souls' Lane and Rochford Street in Charlottetown, will be the subject of Heritage Week presentations Feb. 15-19 at 2 p.m. daily.

A couple of long-time parishioners at St. Peter’s Cathedral in Charlottetown are going be giving a history lesson on the Anglican church’s chapel next week.

Peggy Williams and Michael Smitherman will be conducting a short presentation each day at 2 p.m., Feb. 15-19, inside All Souls’ Chapel on Rochford Street. It's part of Heritage Week in Charlottetown.

The presentation will be followed by a question-and-answer session.

The chapel was built in 1888 as a memorial to Father George Hodgson, the first priest-incumbent of St. Peter’s Cathedral, to a design by the noted ecclesiastical architect William Critchlow Harris.

The chapel's walls feature paintings by Harris' brother, Robert, whose work is also featured in several Canadian museums.

There will be more on this story in Saturday's Guardian on the religion page.

    The article forgets to mention that the brother of the architect is the noted Canadian artist Robert Harris whose paintings are in several museums in Canada. He decorated the interior of the Chapel.
