Celebrating Our Lady Of Mt. Carmel’s Feast Day With Kids

The feast of Our Lady Of Mt. Carmel is coming up on July 16. We have been having a blast here learning new Mary feast days and stories, but we can’t forget this well known Mary apparition as well! This particular feast day is super awesome because it includes Our Lady Of Mt. Carmel, St. Simon Stock, and also the sacramental of scapulars! You can find more fun July feast days to celebrate here. For now let’s dive into celebrating Our Lady Of Mt. Carmel’s feast day with kids

Story In A Nutshell

Our Lady appeared to St. Simon on Mount Carmel and handed the brown woolen scapular to him. Wearing the scapular comes with many promises from Our Lady, and some Catholics choose to wear it all the time.

There is a free YouTube video on Our Lady Of Mt. Carmel for kids here.
