All Saints’ staff and students recieved their purple ribbons today during Mass or collective worship. They have been tasked with keeping their purple ribbon close at hand, either on their blazer, organiser or pencil case. The ribbon is to act as a reminder that our liturgical colour will change as we enter a very important time of the liturgical year. It also acts as a reminder that we are entering a time of waiting and preperation. Chritmas can be a very stressful time for some and we must remind ourselves that Christ is always with us lighting the path ahead.
