Formerly St Mary's Convent Chapel, located on Colombo Street, the chapel is listed as an Historic Place Category 2.

The Rose Historic Chapel in Colombo Street reopened in July 2018 after two years' careful restoration work.

The collapsed gable walls were restored, the roof and foundations strengthened, and the stained glass windows were reconstructed and reinstalled. 

The heritage-listed Rose Historic Chapel, formerly known as the St Mary’s Convent Chapel, was built in Colombo St in 1910 and was the first of six church designs the Luttrell brothers, Alfred and Sydney, undertook as the unofficial Diocesan architects for the Roman Catholic Church.

The chapel, which featured an outstanding collection of stained glass windows, was bought by Christchurch City Council in 1996 to ensure its retention.
