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 Catholic churches: St Wulstan’s Catholic Church in Totteridge and Our Lady of Grace Catholic Church 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

Prayer for Christlikeness
(John Henry Cardinal Newman)
Dear Jesus, help me to spread your fragrance everywhere I go;
Flood my soul with your spirit and life;
Penetrate and possess my whole being so completely
That all my life may be only a radiance of yours;
Shine through me and be so in me
That everyone with whom I come into contact
May feel your presence within me.
Let them look up and see no longer me—but only Jesus.

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.
