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.
God is always gracious toward your weakness.
It is the object of God’s Infinite Goodness and Mercy.
The 2nd Parish Badminton Social was held on Sunday 18 September in Vermont South Sportlink. It attracted slightly over 50 people; from the very young to the more mature.
CONGRATULATIONS to our ELEVATE Youth Group who took home the CHAMPIONSHIP SHIELD last Saturday. A huge thank you to our youth who represented Elevate and led St Christopher's to a great victory against Youth Groups from St Leonard’s, St Benedict’s and other parishes. A variety of games was played on the day, from dodgeball to basketball and everyone had lots of fun. Thanks to Aidan Stewart, Robert Vecchio and Eliza Lai for helping to feed the youth and to Fr Ralph for concluding the day by celebrating Mass. We need YOU to join us next year when we defend the shield!
