DIY Brown Wool Scapular Kit

Our Lady of Mount Carmel appeared to St. Simon Stock in the 13th century and gave him the Brown Scapular. Use this kit to make your own scapulars & take up (or renew) participation in this powerful sacramental.

“To wear a brown scapular, a person must be invested by a priest. Any priest can do it, but a Carmelite priest would be especially happy to do it for you. Just bring along a brown wool scapular (cheap ones are widely available, I think Stella Marigold Art and In Gold of Ophir make THE most beautiful hand embroidered ones), a copy of the prayers (I’ve got a printable version here), and, if possible, speak to Father ahead of time to see if he’s available to do it for you. After being invested, you may replace the scapular as needed, and the blessing and investiture transfer.” (from the blog: The Brown Scapular and Other Sacramentals: Using Them, Losing Them, Not Confusing Them)

Investiture with the Brown Scapular Printable Booklet and Keepsake available here.
