At the beginning of half term Bishop Philip visited our parish. During the weekend he met with a number of parish groups, including the St Vincent de Paul (SVP) group – to which our own Mini-Vinnies, led by Mrs Miccoli were invited. The Mini Vinnies listened to talks from other groups such as the Foodbank and also a talk by the SVP which they all found very interesting, especially as to how these groups help people who are struggling. Bishop Phillip asked the Mini Vinnies lots of questions about how they fundraise and he then gave them the opportunity to ask him questions. Alex asked him what he gave up for Lent and Katelyn asked if he had ever met the Pope…..if you want to know the answers you will have to ask a Mini Vinnie!
