The Monastery of Saint Christopher is located in the village of Mislodjin, in the city district of Obrenovac. The monastic church was built on the remains of a smaller, trefoil-shaped church, whose foundations have been preserved and are kept in the church crypt. It is assumed that the church was built in the 15th century, during the rule of Despot Stefan Lazarević, and renewed in the second half of the 16th century. Because of the trefoil layout of the original church, the Monastery of St. Christopher is tied to the Morava School of architecture, whose monuments can be seen in Central Serbia. The beginning of restoration is connected with the arrival of Sister Justina, today the monastery’s Hegumeness, who came to Serbia from Canada at the end of 2010. Upon her arrival, Metropolitan Amfilohije sent her to Mislodjin, with a mission to renew and restore the monastery. Since then, the interior has been rearranged and new construction started in 2014. When digging the foundations of the new church, preserved bones were found of the monks who had lost their lives here, which lie today in reliquaries in the crypt of the monastic church. The monastery was consecrated in 2015 by the Serbian Patriarch Irinej.
