Overview

This prominently placed 19th century gothic revival church and monastery dominates the hills surrounding Oriental Bay. The church was constructed between 1907 and 1910 and the monastery later in 1932. The buildings are of historic and architectural interest with the church containing important historic items like the Swan's altar and wonderful stained glass windows. The inside of the building is not well known but the exterior rich red brickwork, which glows as the sun disappears with the evening sky, makes it a well known landmark.
