According to the century old Carmelite tradition, the brown scapular of the Carmelites was given by the Blessed Virgin to St. Simon Stock on July 16th in the year 1251. Pope Sixtus V approved a feast in 1587 that commemorates this important private revelation to the English man and crusader, St. Simon Stock in the South of England. If you wish to be enrolled in the confraternity of Our Lady of Mount Carmel by receiving the brown scapular, please present yourself at the communion rail. Please obtain a brown scapular and hold it in your hand at the beginning of the short ceremony. Canon Wiener will bless the scapulars and then impose them individually.
