About Mini Vinnies
Mini Vinnies are a worldwide group especially for primary school children, developed by the St Vincent de Paul Society (SVP). Mini Vinnies are encourage to see Christ in themselves and others through prayer, discussion and looking at social issues. Information about Mini Vinnies or St Vincent de Paul is available by clicking the images above.
Holy Family Mini Vinnies are supported by Mrs Backhouse and meet regularly to learn more about prayer and the importance of practical works. Each meeting starts with a prayer, a scripture reading and a discussion and reflection on the readings. The Mini Vinnies discuss how they can help their family, friends, the local community and people in need, particularly those in developing countries. Our group are working to turn concern into action as they use the simple formula, ‘See, Think, Do!’
The Work Of The Mini Vinnies
Earlier this term, Holy Family Mini Vinnies launched an appeal for non-perishable food items in aid of a local food bank. They had a great response and thanks to the generosity of families, they were able to donate items to really help people in the local community and support this valuable service.
