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).

HYMN BOOKS

Some of the new hymn books are badly torn, hopefully not by an adult but we cannot blame the children. Please do not allow your children to use the hymn book as a toy. There is a colouring page for them. Note these are not just hymn books as they were given to the Church in loving memory of someone. Please give due respect to them. Thank you.

This will now take place on the last Monday of every month at 7.30pm in the Presbytery and a prerequisite for any christening. The next programme will be (Bank Holiday) Monday 28th August.

 

 

Food & Drink in the Church

Please do not consume food & drink in the Church for both children & adults. The Parish is very happy that we have special places in the Church for people with pushchairs and prams. Please leave these spaces free for whom they were intended.

We also thank all parents for bringing their children to the Church and being part of our family. If your children are getting restless, please take them to the Cry Chapel.
