Mini Vinnies


The Society of St Vincent de Paul has been engaging with young people and education since its earliest days.

‘Mini Vinnies’ are children aged between 7 to 11 (or younger) who, with the permission of their parents and the support of their schools, are encouraged to embark on their first steps as possible ‘Vincentians for life’.  As Mini Vinnies, the youngs 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’.

At St James’, we have a Mini Vinnies committee who have regular meetings where they discuss their next steps with fundraising, giving and friendship.
