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).

The Month of May

Our Lady

The statue of Our Lady will be crowned at the 12 noon Mass on Sunday 1st May.

This month is traditionally kept in honour of Our Lady.

Why not look for some special way of honouring Our Lady during this
month, for instance by praying the Rosary either individually, as a family or with parishioners in the church?
PARISH DEVOTIONS: Please join the Parish for ROSARY after 9.30am Mass on weekdays, before 9am Mass (8:40am) & 6pm Mass (5:30pm) on Sundays.

All are Welcome

We as a Parish Family welcome everyone: children, young people, adults, parents with young babies, disabled and elderly. Recently we have cut six pews close to the last six columns on either side from the back of the Church to make more space for disabled people, parents with buggies etc. Please make use of this facility.

May we ask others not to take these spaces which are created for those who are disabled, people with poor eye sight, pushchairs, parents with babies, etc.

Altar Servers Annual Mass

All the Altar Servers and their families are invited to this year’s Annual Mass on Monday 2nd May at The Friars, Aylesford. The parish will arrange a Coach for travel. We are going to book the coach this week so any Altar Servers who wish to go should sign-up on the sheet in the Sacristy this weekend.
