Our Mini Vinnies have had a busy start to the school year. We organised a special Commissioning Mass with our Cluster Catholic Primary Schools. This was held at our Parish Church. During the Mass, our children made their Pledge promising to make a difference in the world. It was lovely to come together as a faith community of schools all working together for the common good. We look forward to further opportunities to work together.
Thank you all for joining us and thank to Fr Pat for a lovely Mass.
Our Mini Vinnies hosted the Macmillan Coffee Afternoon which was a great success!
We raised an impressive £1,157.02!
'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 youngsters 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'.
