The building exterior features flying buttresses and a five-storey spire marks the imposing entrance to the chapel. Each of the columns of the building and link ways feature unique, intricate carvings of tropical birds and plants. Along with a picture perfect setting and the perfect address, the high ceiling chapel interior features delicate stained glass windows that were produced in Bruges, Belgium by Jules Dobbelaere, considered the finest stained glass craftsman in late nineteenth-century Europe. The glass panels depict scenes from the Bible as well as the 12 apostles. Below a cross-vaulted ceiling, the floor of the chapel is laid with multi-coloured terrazzo tiles that create a beautiful and majestic venue.
