The monthly Carmelite Conversations continue via zoom PLEASE NOTE THIS SESSION BEGINS AT 10.3OAM

In April, Paul Chandler will explore the topic The Legend of Saint Simon Stock and Scapular Devotion.

For most people their first and perhaps only contact with the Carmelite Order is the Brown Scapular of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, which remains to be a very popular Catholic devotion. Sadly, much of what is written about the scapular and Simon Stock,on the internet and elsewhere, is misleading or just plain wrong. Paul will lead us in exploring the true history of the Scapular, its purpose, and meaning for today.
