Entrance Wall

Before you leave All Souls’ Chapel today, take a moment to face the “Entrance Wall”, and take note of the following features:

Looking up, as you face the main door of the Chapel, you will see above the door a stained glass window with an Easter theme – depicting Christ coming forth from the tomb when he rose from the dead at Easter. 

To the left, right and above the main door you will see additional Robert Harris paintings based on New Testament themes:

To your left, you will see Christ calling St. Andrew to become “a fisher of men”. The figure of Andrew is a portrait of Thomas Harris, Robert and William Harris's older brother, who died in 1904. The painting is in his memory.

Above the door, below the window, you will see a painting of the Crucifixion of Christ.  This painting is in memory of William Critchlow Harris, the Chapel’s architect, and was the last painting to be installed in the Chapel in 1914. Appropriately, it is placed under a window showing Christ’s Resurrection. The painting and the window placed over the door suggest that it is “through the grave and gate of death” that we pass to our joyful resurrection.  

To the right of the door, you will see a painting “The Raising of Dorcas”, a memorial to Dorcas Octavia Pedder Desbrisay, in illustration of the story told in Acts 9 of the raising of Dorcas by St. Peter.  Dorcas Desbrisay was the wife of Reverend Theophilus Desbrisay, the first Anglican Priest on Prince Edward Island.
