A Scapular is a Sacramental of the Church.  The Brown Scapular, brought to St. Simon Stock, of the Carmelite Order, by the Blessed Virgin Mary, in 1251, is a made up of two squares of wool, which are worn over the head, with one square in the front and the other in the back.  Those who wear the Brown Scapular are invested in the Brown Scapular Confraternity and share in the spiritual benefits of the Carmelite Order.  Those who are invested in the Brown Scapular Confraternity wear their scapular at (almost) all times, pray a rosary daily, and live a chaste life according to their marital status.  More information about the Brown Scapular and its origins can be found here:  Sisters of Carmel

This sacramental is new to our campus for the 2016-2017 school year.  We have already had four students discern this was a devotional they wanted to add to their prayer life.
