The chapel was replaced in 1864 by the Church of St. Francis Xavier. The church was built on a lot of land given by Sir Henry Pottinger on which no ground rent was paid. Cost was $3,000 raised exclusively in Manila.

A year later a subscription was launched to build nearby St Joseph's Hospital for the care of poor Chinese.
