Mini Vinnies is a group primary school young people who get together to help those in need within their school and local community. Mini Vinnies introduces children to social justice issues and to living faith through action as part of the St Vincent de Paul Society.
The St Vincent de Paul Society is a lay Catholic organisation that aspires to live the gospel message by serving Christ in the poor with love, respect, justice, hope and joy, and to bring about a more just and compassionate society.
We follow the motto of the Mini Vinnie logo, to ‘turn concern into action’.
‘Lord Jesus, you made yourself poor, so help us give our hearts to the poor and help us to see God in their eyes. Help us to see that they are just like you; hungry, lonely and going through hard times. Please help the family of St Vincent de Paul to not be boastful, to live simply and to be united.’
