Mini Vinnies

Mini Vinnies visit to Fisher More - report by Amelia, Matthew and Eleanor

We went to Fisher More on the 19th October and we took part in a range of activities. Firstly, we presented our presentation in front of the pupil chaplains, Gift Teams and other Mini Vinnies. After that, we were placed into teams of ten and worked on activities such as; cross making, friendship bracelets, finding star fish whilst blind folded and making book marks. We then had a delicious lunch with our friends!
Meanwhile the Fisher More Chaplains were setting up for the new Mini Vinnies/Chaplains/Gift Team members to get commissioned. We then attended Mass led by  Bishop John. One of our pupils was an altar server!
Mrs McKeating and her group 'Mission Impossible' went to Kenya in the Summer of 2017 and gave each school a Nativity set made by the 'Mammas' from Kenya from banana leaves and we were also given an Angel each made also from banana leaves.
We had a lovely spiritual day.

Annointing Mass Lunch 

The Mini Vinnies attended a special lunch which was held after the annointing mass for the sick of the parish, they did a wonderful job helping to serve the lunch and tidy away afterwards.

The Mini Vinnies held a bake sale to raise money to help the refugee families who have recently arrived in the local area, several of the families are expecting babies soon. They made £44.50.
