A very warm welcome to the website of our Parish of Blessed John Henry Newman, which was founded on 1 October 2010, by the Right Reverend Peter Doyle, Bishop of Northampton.
We consist of two churches: St Wulstan’s in Totteridge and Our Lady of Grace in Booker.
Our aim is simply to bear witness to the love God has for us in the person of our Lord Jesus Christ, to share this love with each other and to spread it into the wider community in which we live.
We look forward to welcoming you into our friendly, supportive and caring community, bringing with you your unique, God-given gifts! So please make yourself known to us and don’t hesitate to get in touch.
Fr. Joseph Udoh MSP – Parish Priest

Our Patron: Blessed John Henry Newman
In 2010, the churches of St Wulstan's, Our Lady of Grace, St Edmund Campion in Hazlemere and St James' the Great in Downley were joined together as one parish.
The Parish then took the name of Blessed John Henry Newman, who had been beatified by Pope Benedict XVI a few months earlier during his State Visit to the UK.
