Who are the Mini Vinnies?
Mini Vinnies follow in the footsteps of Christ and St Vincent de Paul.
The Mini Vinnies are the youngest members of the St Vincent de Paul Society (SVP), an international Christian voluntary organisation dedicated to tackling poverty in all its forms by providing practical assistance to people in need.
At St. Mary's anyone can become a Mini Vinnie. They meet regularly, with Mrs Noyes, to live out our mission of see, think, do, supporting the St. Mary's school community and beyond alongside the SVP.
What do the Mini Vinnies do here at St. Mary's?
The Mini Vinnies are very active members of our school community and as a school we are very proud of the work they do. Mini Vinnies turn concern into action by…
Praying for those in need
Making cards for those who may be sick, isolated, lonely or in prison
Visiting local care homes to sing and share stories with residents
Taking part in arts and crafts to share with others
Running food collections for a local food bank
Supporting other children in their school or parish
