“Turning Concern into Action”
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. The Mini Vinnies are quite literally, mini St. Vincent de Paul’s!
Mini Vinnies meet to pray, discuss and support however they can to help make a difference in their communities.
The Mini Vinnies at St Oswald’s work together to support charities and the local community. Past activities include cake sales in school to raise money for Mary’s Meals and organising an afternoon tea social for parishioners in the parish club. We are fortunate to be supported in our Mini Vinnies work by parishioner Mr John Lawless and Mrs James and members of the St Vincent de Paul Society from Cardinal Newman High School.
