The Catholic chapel was originally built in 1913 on a wing of building 11 across the parade ground. In 1938, buildings 10, 11 and 12 were demolished, but the chapel was left free standing. A new stone façade was added to the old chapel consisting of stones from the original barracks/hospital that was demolished. In 1940, a new chapel was built on this site and the stone façade that was installed on the old chapel was dismantled, moved to the new chapel and reassembled.

'When moved to its new location, the beautiful entrance was duplicated by numbering and resetting each stone in its original location.'
