Abstract: The concept of the formation of Christian comunities has passed through various developments. The seed sown by the Gospel, enlivened by the apostles and first disciples, began to grow in various grounds in different ages. In time these communities came to form part of lively cells around a bishop and surrounded by monasteries. Eventually they started to take on a juridical status which took years to be well defined. The 1436 visitation by Bishop Senatore de Mello recorded 10 parishes in the island. Zabbar and its environs were dependent on the parish priest of St Catherine of Zejtun.
