Minnie Vinnies


The ‘Mini Vinnies’ are children aged between 7 to 11 who, with the permission of their parents and the support of St Cuthbert’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 Vinnie’s in school.


Harvest Festival 2015

The children of St Cuthbert’s RC school brought in dried food and canned goods throughout October.  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, one being a parishioner from our church. The rest of the goods were donated to a local charity and presented at our Harvest Festival.
