Welcome

ST BONIFACE CATHOLIC CHURCHTwitter-iconFacebook Icon

St. Boniface Catholic Church Tooting opened for worship in 1907 and is home to a large Parish Community in South West London with over 45 nationalities represented in our parish family. We are in the RC Archdiocese of Southwark.

Holy Mass is celebrated daily – see Mass Times for details. Everyone is invited to the hall on Sundays after the 10:30am Mass for tea and coffee; for anyone new to the parish, you are very welcome to join in these coffee mornings and to meet the priests after Sunday Mass.

Our Parish Primary School (St Boniface R.C. Primary School) is a vital part of our community.

The parish has two halls available for hire on weekends (See Hall Hire).


See the Sacraments page for information on Baptism,  First Holy Communion, Marriage, etc.


Lent

Parish Open House

A Parish surgery is held on Friday evenings between 6pm – 7:30pm. This is an opportunity to see one of the priests about routine matters (such as form signing or arranging baptisms) or to have a private chat about any other matter. No appointment necessary.

The next Parish surgery will be on Friday 12th February between 6pm and 7.30pm.

Please note: parish surgeries are not for turning up to view the hall. If you would like an appointment to view the hall please email secretary@stbonifacetooting.org.uk to arrange this.

Jubilee Year of Mercy

8 December 2015 – 20 November 2016cq5dam.web.1280.1280

To forgive offences is one of the spiritual works of mercy. When we forgive others, we come to resemble God who is always rich in mercy.

Each time we pray the Lord’s Prayer, we ask God to “forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.” Is there something the Lord is asking us to forgive during this year of mercy?

Ministers of Holy Communion

We need more parishioners to serve as extraordinary ministers of Holy Communion. Their role is to assist with the distribution of Holy Communion at Mass and also with taking the Blessed Sacrament to the Sick and Housebound.

If you feel able to participate in this important ministry, please put your details on one of the forms at the back of the church and pass the form to one of the priests.

Message from Fr Tom

“St Thomas of Canterbury parishioners are very grateful to all those who came to be with us on the inauguration of Fr Tom as our Parish Priest. Your presence, support and contribution of prayers, choir help and refreshment made it a very special day for him and for all of us all. Many thanks and God Bless all those who attended and those unable to attend. We wish happiness for both the clergy and community of St Boniface.

May I also add that it was a day made really enjoyable by seeing so many of you again. Thank you very much and till we meet again, may God Bless you all.—Fr.Tom”

Thank you for your generous response to Fr Shaju’s appeal last weekend for sponsorship to cover the cost of restoring a number of items in the church.

If you would like to sponsor the restoration of an item, there are still ten candlesticks and four chalices or ciboriums, please speak to Fr Shaju.

Mass Cards/Mass Bookings

Mass cards should now be purchased from the Repository / Shop at the back of the Church.

Brown envelopes will be available for you to give your donation and clearly write the Mass intention, date required and a contact telephone number. These envelopes can be left in the Repository / Shop, given to one of the Priests at the end of Mass or posted through the letter box of the Presbytery.

Your Wedding Anniversary

Are you celebrating your first, 10th, 25th, 40th, 50th, 60th or any later wedding anniversary this year?

If so, Archbishop Peter invites you to join him to renew your vows and celebrate a Mass for married couples at 3pm on Saturday June 18th at St George’s Cathedral. Your family are welcome too. Enter your names on the form on the parish noticeboard (or send them by e-mail to secretary@stbonifacetooting.org.uk) and you will receive a personal written invitation from Archbishop Peter.

Prayer Intentions Book

Our new parish book of prayer intentions is now at the back of the church. This is a place where we can leave special intentions for the parish family to pray for. At Sunday Masses, the book will be brought forward in the offertory procession and placed near the altar.

If you have a special prayer intention that you would like to be remembered, please write it in the book.
