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).
