International Peace Garden


Welcome to the Chapel of Peace at the International Peace Garden. The Chapel is a part of a wide vision which grew out of a resolution presented by the Grand Chapters of North Dakota and Manitoba at the 27th Triennial Session of the GGC, held in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1952.The aim of the resolution was to endorse the establishment, development and maintenance of the IPG, and to urge the Grand Chapters and members of the OES to assist in the garden's future. The funding of the project began in 1952. At the 30th Triennial Session in 1961, it was decided to construct the Chapel. Sister Sayda Seybold Pettersen, MWGM, set the project as the primary goal of the 1967-1970 triennial, requesting that each member assist in the completion of the Chapel. Construction began in 1969 and the structure was dedicated on July 18, 1970 by Mrs. Pettersen.

The main feature of the Chapel is the three encircling walls of flat sewn limestone into which has been engraved quotations spoken or wirtten by "people of peace" throughout history. The lettering receives a continuous wash of daylight from the skylights around the perimeter of the Chapel. The limestone is a native stone of Manitoba, commonly called Tyndall stone. Some of the stone is marked with fossils of marine creatures molded in a bed of tropical sea millions of years ago. The brick paved floor came from Charleston, WV.

The organ was a gift from the estate of the late R. Donald Stewart, PMWGP ( PGP of New Brunswick ) and his late wife Jean. The Chapel is non- denominational and open to everyone.
