St Mary’s ‘Mini-Vinnies’
‘Mini-Vinnies’ is based on:
The Society of St Vincent de Paul (SVP)
‘Mini Vinnies’ are children aged between 7 to 11 (or younger) who, with the permission of their parents and the support of their schools, are encouraged to embark on their first steps as possible ‘Vincentians for life’.
As ‘Mini Vinnies’, the children have their own ‘treasured’ Prayer, Pledge and Badge, a dedicated website and a range of bright and colourful documents which guide them in their formative steps – helping and enabling them to become in every sense, young Vincentians – or ‘Mini Vinnies’.
Our ‘Mini-Vinnie’ Year 6 group of children meet regularly and help the local homes for the elderly.
