Our Parish


Welcome to the website of the Catholic Parish of Our Lady of the Assumption in Cheltenham, Victoria, Australia.

About Our Lady of the Assumption Parish

We are situated in the so-called sand belt area of Melbourne, famous for its many world class golf courses, about 20 kms south east of the city centre. Southland Shopping Centre is the commercial hub of the parish. Moorabbin Airport is on the fringe.

Our parish is built on what was once sprawling market gardens. On this rich earth a community of faith began to grow as a parish in the 1950’s. Today our parish community endeavours to respond to the pastoral and spiritual needs of many Catholics from Cheltenham and its surrounds.

We pray that all within our parish community will continue to enhance not only the lives of one another, but additionally, that we may reach out with the compassion and love Christ to our wider community.
