your Wedding on Mare Island:
Peter's Chapel was
built in 1901 under the guidance of Chaplin McAllister. An addition was made
two years later, to add space for the Organ Pipes and the blower which provides
air pressure for the organ. The organ was installed in 1929. and updated in
1966 with some additional new pipes and minor changes. The twenty-nine stained
glass windows were installed over a thirty year period to honor individuals
and groups such as the "Women of the Navy and Marines." Of course, there
is a window dedicated to McAllister. Twenty-five of the windows are known
to be from the Tiffany Studios One by the Cummings Studios, and three from
Ingerson and Glaser of San Francisco.
The Chapel is available for Weddings, Memorials, Funerals, Baptisims and Special
Events. There is donation of $700 required for Weddings, which includes a
prior-day rehearsal. For further details, contact Dave Smith at 707/649-8024.
Shorter events are only available Monday through Friday.
Each Christmas since 1996 the Foundation has presented a concert and sing-along.
