St. Oswald’s Mini Vinnies
The Mini Vinnies group is a junior section of the St. Vincent de Paul Society (SVP).
This society promotes Christian love in action.
At St. Oswald’s a group of Key Stage 2 children have voluntarily given up some of their playtime to become Mini Vinnies.
Children are encouraged to put their faith into action. Members give support to people in their community, meeting them face to face and trying to help them in any way they can.
Mini Vinnies learn about some of the problems around us and how they can help to make a difference.
St. Vincent’s life is a great reminder for us all to find ways to help those around us.
“Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the Kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” Matthew 19:14
Thank you to all of you who donated food to The Key Project and Hospitality and Hope. Our Mini Vinnies helped the charity workers to pack and load it into their vehicles. Both charities were very grateful and asked us to pass on their thanks on behalf of the many local people that they are able to support.
