The Brown Scapular Mass

The Brown Scapular

The Brown Scapular is a sign of your special relationship with Mother Mary, whom you pledge to imitate.  Once it is put around your neck, at enrollment time, by a priest, it should always remain there.  Fr. Hoyer will have a brown Scapular enrollment on the feast of The Immaculate Conception, December 8, Monday at 7:00 p.m. Mass. You are invited.
