Our Mini Vinnies meet regularly to reflect on their own faith and help develop a child let approach, for the school, to the second aspect of the double commandment: loving our neighbour.
Through their actions, they give witness to a loving God. The highlight how Jesus places himself with the poorest of the poor, and help the school to understand how we can respond with dignity for each of our brothers and sisters in Christ.
The Mini Vinnies have a stronger partnership with our parish SVP. They enjoy sharing ideas together, having lunch together and working together to ensure those within our local community experience the love of Jesus when they most need it.
The Mini Vinnies have established fantastic links with our local food bank. They organise a number of collections for the food bank throughout the year (e.g. Harvest, Reverse Advent Calendar and Saint Joseph's Table). They also visit the food bank to work with volunteers from the food bank as well as inviting those volunteers into school to speak to both the school and parish.
The Mini Vinnies also have links with Caritas Salford. Anthony has visited the school to enjoy lunch with the Mini Vinnies and find out about our annual Gifts for a Baby collection every Epiphany.
