The St. Vincent de Paul Society
The St. Vincent de Paul Society was founded in 1839 by a 19 year old Catholic student called Fredric Ozanam. The society is dedicated to helping those in poverty and need by providing practical assistance, irrespective of faith, ethnicity or gender.
St Vincent de Paul was a priest who dedicated himself to serve the poor. He spent his life helping those in need and was known for his compassion, humility and generosity. Vincent's life is a great reminder for us all, to find ways to help those around us.

The St. Oswald's Mini Vinnies were involved in the Macmillian Coffee Morning; we raised an amazing £177.80 for people living with cancer and their families. Thank you to all our wonderful parents/carers for supporting us and also donating lots of delicious cakes. The Mini Vinnies served their customers and looked after their guests.
