Project Description

A new side chapel with a bespoke new tomb is now the final resting place of Mother Suzanne Aubert, founder of the Sisters of Compassion. Mother Aubert died in 1926 after a life dedicated to helping the poor. The chapel is on a site nestled in the hills near the entrance to Island Bay, which has been transformed to create the Suzanne Aubert Heritage Centre.

The new chapel was one of the project’s six stages. It adjoins the main chapel and has a sloping brink roof, rose tinted concrete, bespoke stain glass windows, and a curved slatted ceiling.
