Christ the King Chapel


33 Caroline Hill Road

Dedicated to Christ the King, this chapel is part of the St Paul’s compound in Causeway Bay which also houses a convent and hospital. Its history can be traced back to 1848, when four Sisters of St Paul of Chartres arrived in Hong Kong after a turbulent sea voyage from France. Initially, they established an orphanage and small hospital in Wan Chai, but moved to an old factory building in Causeway Bay in 1915 to cater for the elderly and sick in addition to children. The foundation stone was laid in 1928, and the chapel was blessed and dedicated in 1930, initially as a private sanctuary for the Sisters. In 1961, the chapel started to hold Sunday mass for children. Now, any churchgoers can access the chapel for Sunday mass: the structure itself can hold up to 1,000 people at a time. Cathy Lam, who used to study at St Paul’s Secondary School, recalls, “I used to go to mass at St Paul’s Church with my schoolmates where we would sing hymns, recite the Bible and listen to sermons.”
