The Church of Our Lady of the Holy Rosary is a Roman Catholic parish church in the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New York, located at 7 State Street, between Pearl St. and Water Streets, Financial District, Manhattan, New York City, New York. The parish is home to the National Shrine of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton.

The Georgian Revival / Colonial Revival brick church was built 1965 to the designs of the architectural firm of Shanley & Sturges. The church is located next to the New York City-landmark James Watson House, 7 State Street. That landmark was built 1793-1806 with the eastern portion build to the designs of an unknown architect and the western half attributed to architect James McComb, Jr. In 1975, the mission was dedicated as the Rectory of the Shrine of St. Elizabeth Seton, after America's first canonized saint, who was born on Staten Island.
