Welcome to St. Christopher’s Parish Community, Syndal. For over fifty years, our parish has been in the care of the Pallottines, a world-wide religious congregation founded by St Vincent Pallotti in 1835.
We are a dynamic and friendly Catholic community of many ethnicities, united as one family under the charism of St. Vincent Pallotti, who called every person to share in the mission of Jesus as an apostle.
As the Parish Priest, together with Fr. Pat, we serve and are proud of the warmth, generosity and loving service of our parish in its outreach to the wider Monash community.

musicians and vocalists with diverse musical interests and talents.
