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 and worldwide. 


What happens at a Mini Vinnies’ meeting?


Mrs Simmons 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 auctioned.
