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


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. Water is turned into wine.

We pray this parish continues to be a source of new wine and rich blessings to all who live here.
