As part of the Forward Together in Hope initiative, the Mini Vinnies decorated candles to give out to families of the parish at Mass on the Feast of Christ the King.
Here are the Mini Vinnies hard at work.

Year 6 Mini Vinnies
Today, the Mini Vinnies went to mass at St Bede’s Church. They joined in with the Children’s Liturgy, helped dress the Jesse Tree and gave out candles to each family in the Parish.
Freya read beautifully at the Children’s Mass – she introduced the Jesse Tree and explained that the Mini Vinnies would be giving out candles so that each family could share in some private prayer together during Advent.
Lauren and Abbey attended the evening Mass (Lauren attending both Masses) and they did a super job together, with Lauren reading this time.
Mrs Kennedy was so proud of the children. They were so well behaved and prayerful during Mass and there were lots of lovely comments about them from the Parishioners. Well done!
