Rosary Church in Tsim Sha Tsui was built in 1905 with a generous donation from a Portuguese Catholic, Antonio Simplicio Gomes, M.D. His wish was to commemorate his parents by offering this church to Our Lady of Pompeii.

Pompeii was an ancient Roman town situated near Naples, Italy. With the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 A.D. the then 600-year-old town with its 20,000 inhabitants was buried under thick volcano ash and forgotten for about 1700 years. Upon excavation in 1748, two-thirds of the town emerged as a witness to the light and shadows of the Roman civilization.
