27 September 2019
Hello and welcome to this 3rd Mini Vinnies Update which shares with you our work and activities as Mini Vinnies and members of the St Vincent de Paul Society here in St Bede’s School.
At the time of writing we are approaching the Memorial feast day of St Vincent de Paul, our holy Patron on 27th September. St Vincent is inspiring to us because he took his call and vocation from God very seriously and wholeheartedly. He chose to serve the poorest and least cared for members of his society with gratitude in his heart to God for all he had received and he was generous with his time, resources and love as he sought to provide for those in need as the Lord inspired him to do.
This week, we made the sandwiches once again for the soup kitchen and it was brilliant for new and current members to join together and work alongside each other as part of this vital outreach work. Four boxes of delicious sandwiches were made ready for the soup kitchen on Tuesday evening and these were gratefully received by the SVP. Donations of large and small rucksacks and backpacks were brought into school and left in Reception and these would be given out along with the sandwiches on the evening of the soup kitchen and outreach in Birmingham City Centre.
Next week, as part of our Tuesday meetings we shall begin working on some special projects for Christmas. More details later!
You can check out the latest updates also on our school Twitter Feed on @StBedesMiddle and @BedesRE.
More exciting updates to follow. Keep reading and pray for us as we continue to be Attentive towards all especially those less fortunate than ourselves and Discerning in the way we choose to live out our own faith and special call from God to be serving Mini Vinnies. We seek to continue our service and work here in St Bede’s by making good choices and living out our positive actions as we strive to become ever Grateful and Generous Mini Vinnies!
