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).

CANON JOHN O’TOOLE

We welcome Canon John to Our Parish family. He looks after the Department of Dialogue and Unity at the bishop’s Conference. He will stay at the presbytery and will help us whenever he is free to do so, after his full time work at the bishop’s Conference. We wish him a happy stay.

 

 

 

 

* MAJOR RESTORATION WORKS *

Many thanks for your prayers. We have completed the work of the dome. The external repairs have completed on the sides and the back.

The work at the front and the tower will start this week. Please be careful when entering and leaving the Church.

We have also done Varnishing of the pews; please do take care of them.

 

 

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.
