Mini Vinnie coffee morning and carols

On Sunday 17th December, some of our Mini Vinnies attended mass at St Peters in Low Fell and then joined their Mini Vinnie group and parishioners from St Peters and Corpus Christi for a coffee morning and festive sing along. It was great fun and some of our children  were very lucky to win raffle prizes. We will let you know how much we raised as soon as we can and all the money will go to the Sudan baby feeding project

 

Many thanks for all your support. Merry Christmas!

The Librarian read us a story…Continue Reading
