Rosary beads made by Mini Vinnies

Mini Vinnies have been making rosary beads to sell during the Month of May. They will be available from the School office for 50p.

The beads represent one decade of the Rosary, with a coloured bead next to the cross for the “Our Father”, 10 beads of the same colour for the “Hail Mary’s”  and a bead at the end for the “Glory Be”. Each decade will be in its own pouch along with a copy of the prayers.

All money raised will be donated to charity so please come along and buy one!

Mini Vinnies – Rosary during May

The Month of May is dedicated to Mary, the Mother of Jesus.

Noting this, Pope Francis is asking Catholics to pray the rosary for peace each day in May.

“We will recite the rosary praying particularly for peace in Syria and the whole world,” the pope said. “I invite you to spiritually join me and to prolong for the whole month of May praying the rosary for peace.”

Our Mini Vinnies have taken up the challenge and will be praying a decade of the rosary each day in the Gospel Garden.

Everyone is welcome to join them in the garden at 12.50 every day, at the end of the lunch break.




Today, we arrived at Allensford for our YMT retreat. The theme of this retreat is that God always shows his love and light to us. We have been exploring this theme and have completed various activities throughout the day on this theme.
