Meeting once a week or fortnightly either during lunchtimes or after school, Mini Vinnies members gather and pray together in their schools, to talk about those around them who need our help, and think of ways they can help those people.
Our Mini Vinnies like to turn concern into action inside and outside school!
Baking cakes for a local nursing home in their premises, bringing an end to bullying in schools, making cards for people in need, and helping teachers tidy up after class are just some of the things that Mini Vinnies get up to. This is usually the start of their Vincentian journey-for-life, where they embrace the 3 key steps to ‘see’, ‘think’ and ‘do’! All Mini Vinnies are school-based.
