Since the early 1900’s, young people have been involved with the work of the St Vincent de Paul Society in New Zealand. Many of our schools in the Dunedin Diocese have Young Vinnies groups.

The Society was founded by seven people, most of whom were teenagers. The object of having a youth arm of the Society that caters to people from age about 11 to 30ish is to help them to realise that there are people in society in need, and to encourage them to help those people.

They are also encouraged to realise that the reason Vincentians help people is not just because they feel good doing this work, but because of the Gospel message to love your neighbour as yourself.

Something to think and pray about these holidays.

Prayer for young Vinnies

We have full and busy lives, Lord, and may not know what it is like to sit alone, longing for a knock at the door and someone to talk to. We are young and fit, Lord, how can we understand what it is like to be old and helpless with eyes that are dim, ears that are deaf and limbs that are stiff and clumsy. We are fit and strong, Lord, and find it hard to imagine what it is like to be in bed day after day, suffering paIn that no one wants to hear about. Lord, we will seek out the lonely the sick, the old, and bring them into the warmth of our lives. Amen

Ngā mihi

God Bless
