The ‘Mini Vinnies’ are children aged betweenÂ 7 to 11 who, with the permission of their parents and the support of St Cuthbertâ€™s, are encouraged to embark on their first steps as possible ‘Vincentians for life’.
As Mini Vinnies, the youngsters have their own ‘treasured’ Prayer, Pledge and Badge, a dedicated website and a range of bright and colourful documents which guide them in their formative steps – helping and enabling them to become in every sense, young Vincentians – or ‘Mini Vinnies’. Mrs Parnell and Mrs Knight run the Minnie Vinnieâ€™s in school.
Harvest Festival 2015
The children of St Cuthbert’s RC school brought in dried food and canned goods throughout October.Â The Mini Vinnies then made up 3 large hampers to distribute into the community near school. They hand delivered the hampers to three local elderly residents,Â one being a parishioner from our church. The rest of the goods were donated to a local charity and presented at our Harvest Festival.
