Mini Vinnies

“Human persons are imprinted with God’s image. Their dignity does not come from the work they do, but from the persons they are.” Saint John Paul II


Who are the Mini Vinnies?

Mini Vinnies are 7 to 11 year olds based in schools and parishes across England and Wales, and in several other countries across the world. They come together to form a part of the St. Vincent de Paul Society England and Wales, a voluntary organisation dedicated to tackling poverty in all its forms. Mini Vinnies meet to pray, discuss and support however they can to help make a difference in their communities.

Mini Vinnies truly turn concern into action as they use the simple formula of ‘see, think, do’ to find people in need and help them. They might help by:

  • Writing cards for children in hospital
  • Visiting local care homes to sing or play games with the residents
  • Knitting scarves for the homeless
  • Running food collections for a local foodbank

The Mini Vinnie society at St Joseph’s is lead by Mrs Picton. They meet on a regular occasion to pray, read scripture and organise the charitable work for the school.
