Mini Vinnies

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

Introducing the Mini Vinnies for 2020-21


The Year of Joseph

As this is the Year of St. Joseph, the Mini Vinnies have asked all the children in our school to think how we can follow in his footsteps. They decided to ask each child to illustrate and write on a footstep template to display in our school. It will be the Mini Vinnies responsibility to decide how we will display them.

Easter Cards

The Mini Vinnies have been making Easter cards for the governors of our school and also the parishioners in our community. Easter is a special time in our liturgical year as we remember our Lords sacrifice to save us all.

The Year of Joseph Footsteps

Here is our wonderful display of footsteps that the Mini Vinnies asked the children in our school to create. This year the children of St. Oswald's are trying to follow in the footsteps of St. Joseph by being kind, humble and hard working.
