St Wilfrid’s Mini Vinnies – ‘Turning concern into action’


Mini Vinnies prayer

Lord, open our eyes that we may see the deepest needs of your people.

Move our hands that we may feed the hungry.

Touch our hearts that they may bring warmth to those who are sad.

Let us share our time and possessions with those in need.

Give us the care that strengthens the sick.

May we all be a source of support and encouragement for each other as we strive to build a more loving society.


Saint Wilfrid’s Mini Vinnies are quite literally mini St. Vincent de Paul’s. The after school club is run by Mrs Cannavan, Mrs Bold and Mrs O’Hara. The children come together to form a part of the St. Vincent de Paul Society in England and Wales, a voluntary organisation dedicated to tackling poverty in all its forms. Mini Vinnies meet to pray, discuss and support people to help make a difference in our local community.

Mini Vinnies truly turn concern into action as they use the simple guidelines of ‘SEE, THINK, DO’ to find people in need and help them.

 St Wilfrid’s Mini Vinnies turn concern into action by:

Regularly visiting a care home

Helping at parish events for the elderly

Making cards for the housebound

Raising funds for charities

Making summer packs for homeless people

Creating prayer focus areas in school

                                         Designing and making prayer cards for the children making their First Holy Communion

                                  Sending cards to the  housebound people in the parish
