What are the Mini Vinnies?

‘Mini Vinnies’ is the name for a St Vincent de Paul Group for primary aged children. We get together to organise and talk about helping others in need within our school community.

Mini Vinnies’ at St. Mary’s meet once a week and is run by Mrs Marland

What happens at a Mini Vinnies’ meeting?

A ‘President’ was elected by all of our Mini Vinnies to lead the meeting and organise the group. Mrs Marland co-ordinates the group and gives help and advice on the practicalities of ideas.

The president opens the meeting with a prayer
A short spiritual reading/ reflection/ piece of music/ meditation follows the prayer.
Group members then talk about the Mini Vinnies’ activities they have done since the previous meeting. Any future plans are then discussed, shared and actioned.
