“Draw us after you, Virgin Mary,
we shall follow in your footsteps”

The brown scapular of Our Lady of Mount Carmel reminds us that Mary is our Mother and our model in discipleship. We strive to walk along her path.

The tradition of the Scapular dates back several centuries and is associated with St. Simon Stock who received an apparition of Our Lady in 1251. Our Lady promised that all who would wear this scapular in her honour would receive her protection and the grace to die well.

In Tallow, we continue the tradition of making the brown scapular while also engaging in some other handcrafts.
