Welcome to this 18th update for the St Bede’s Mini Vinnies group.
First of all, a very big thank you to all of you who have kindly donated so many toiletries and items for the current SVP homeless appeal. We have received many wonderful donations and on behalf of the Redditch and Bromsgrove SVP thank you all so much for all you have done to support our most needy brothers and sisters locally.
May the Lord bless you richly for your kindness and generosity. “Whatever you did for the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did it for Me.” Jesus. Matthew 25:40
The Mini Vinnies came together for the final time this Term to make the sandwiches once more for the SVP Soup Kitchen. The pupils were super-efficient and gave their all to make the sandwiches again. With their enthusiasm and organisational skills, the group of over 25 pupils managed to make double the amount of the sandwiches for the Soup Kitchen as we shall be on our Easter holidays when we would normally be making them. We used around 32 loaves of bread and as well as the usual meat and jam sandwiches we made lots of cheese sandwiches using 4kg of cheese!
Please pray for all who faithfully support and run the SVP Soup Kitchen in the City of Birmingham and those who are in most need who come and use this vital outreach service.
The next sandwich making run will be on Friday 10th May 2019. We shall also be launching our summer appeal for the SVP during this next Term. More details to follow.
Thanks so much for all the practical and spiritual support that you provide for the Mini Vinnies to continue their sterling work and service in our local community. Please continue to pray for the group as we keep going in the Lord’s service supporting our brothers and sisters in need.
