St. Christopher’s Catholic Parish aims to be alive in Faith and Love, a welcoming community in which each member is co-responsible for ‘being Church’ to all in their daily lives.
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.
Make your faithfulness a sacrifice which you offer to Jesus with the intention:
“All for the greater glory of God and the salvation of souls.”...Remember this: to save souls is a divine work.
It is a spiritual pastoring. Humble yourself before God and say to yourself:
“By my own strength I can do nothing but with God’s help I can do all things”.
The relationship between a father and
his children is one of the most significant relationships that a man will ever
have. The impact that our fathers have
on us and we as fathers have on our sons lasts a life time. Fatherhood really
Every young man needs to hear and
believe that he is good enough in his father’s eyes. Every boy wants his father to give him a
sense of male acceptance, affirmation and affection. For a boy to become a man and to gain an
understanding of masculinity he needs the guidance of good men and none more so
than his father.
On Sunday 26

gathered at Lysterfield Lake Park for an afternoon of fun and activity.
Filmed on location throughout the U.S. and internationally — from Times
Square to St. Peter’s Square, CHOSEN is visually stunning. It is engagingly
paced to keep teens’ interest with the right balance of faith, fun, and
powerful videos, delivered by a team whose expertise, dynamic personalities,
