Enroll in the Brown Scapular – Our Lady of Mount Carmel

Tuesday, July 16, is the Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel. We will honor Mary under this title at our 8:30 am Mass on Saturday, July 20. This will include an opportunity to receive and be enrolled in the Brown Scapular, an outward sign of one’s interior consecration to Our Lady.

The Brown Scapular consists of two small pieces of cloth joined by strings and worn over the shoulders. According to tradition, Our Lady gave the scapular as a sign of salvation to Saint Simon Stock, a Carmelite priest, in 1251. She promised that “Those who die wearing this scapular shall not suffer eternal fire.”

If you have been enrolled in the past, you are enrolled for life, but please come to the 8:30 am Mass on July 20 to renew your own relationship with Our Lady.
