TRINITY CATHOLIC SCHOOL MINI VINNIES
“Then the king will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father. Inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me, naked and you clothed me, ill and you cared for me, in prison and you visited me.”
The Trinity Catholic School Mini Vinnies is a junior branch of the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul. Our goal is to help others through charitable works while spreading the Catholic faith. This organization is made up of Trinity Middle School Students. We lead and organize our school mission to live out the Church’s Social Teaching.
Every month we visit the Kearney Center to help serve lunch. This is only one way that we give back to our community. Some big projects/drives to look forward to this year are: Matthew's Baby Pantry; monthly canned food collections; And our annual pet-food drive. Please remember to bring cans for every All School Mass.
Let’s have a blessed year!
“We must love our neighbor as being made in the image of God and as an object of His love.”
