One of the speakers at the National Conference spoke about the future and wanted to raise awareness of our work with the Youth Groups. In April, therefore, we held a coffee morning in the Parish Centre to raise funds for Young Vincentians including the Mini-Vinnies. As usual, our parishioners were very supportive and over £100 was raised. Our President recently addressed a Mini-Vinnies group at St. Joseph’s School on Canvey Island. There are leaflets at the back of the Church about Young Vincentian groups with full details about membership.
