St. Teresa's Mini Vinnies
‘Mini Vinnies’ is a St Vincent de Paul Group in a Primary School. At St. Teresa’s we have a group of Year 6 pupils who get together, organise and talk about helping others in need within our school community and beyond. What makes Mini Vinnies such a valuable experience for the children who are part of it, is the change it makes in our school community. Our Mini Vinnies group meet once a week during break-time.
Our ‘President’ leads the meeting and organises the group. Mrs Holmes co-ordinates the group and gives help and practical advice. The President opens the meeting with a prayer.
A short spiritual reading/reflection/piece of music/meditation follows. The Group members take turns to do this.
