Mini Vinnies

Our new Mini Vinnies!

Introducing our new team of Mini Vinnies!


It is wonderful that we are able to resume our Mini Vinnies group across both our Junior and Infant Schools. The children made their promises today (Tuesday 22nd March 2022) with Father Clive and he gave us all a special blessing to help us when we are helping others.


Chaplaincy Team


St Mary's Priory Chaplaincy group began in September 2016. All children in the junior school were invited to apply by writing a letter explaining why they would make a good chaplain and what they could bring to the role.

The infant Mini Vinnies group was formed of children who showed an interest verbally with the RE Leader.

Our chaplaincy team and Mini Vinnies meet on a weekly basis and are busy planning prayer and liturgy opportunities for the coming year.

Roles and Responsibilities


  • To help share the Good News of Christ
  • To support the spiritual life of the school
  • To set the right example to all children and staff
