Becoming a Mini Vinnie is a great idea! It allows you to help other people which always helps you to know yourself better.
It can also be a useful part of preparation for the sacraments of Holy Communion and Confirmation. By learning how to be kind and thoughtful to others, we are drawing closer to Jesus. He asked us to always look out for the poor and the lonely and treat them with respect. The good works carried out as a Mini Vinnie contributes to your Pope Francis Faith Award!
When you join Mini Vinnies, you will get your own badge, prayer card and pencil. Being a Mini Vinnie is challenging, enjoyable and brings many new experiences. You will attend meetings led by a teacher or another adult from the school or parish (usually lunch time or after school), help with planning your activities, then give your time to help other people. Helping others always makes you feel good!
