Our Lady of Mt. Carmel- Sweet Treats

The Feast of Our Lady of Mr. Carmel is coming up on July 16. This is a super awesome feast day to celebrate with kids because you learn about St. Simon Stock, a Mary apparition, and also the scapular all at once! The name of Our Lady lends herself to all kinds of deliciousness as it is very similar to the word caramel. So I mean… don’t we owe it to the world to eat caramel on this day? I think we do! haha. Also, there are so many fun and easy ways to make edible scapulars- you don’t want to miss it! So let’s take a look at these Our Lady Of Mt. Carmel sweet treats!

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. To read more about the story and promises of the scapular, check out Garment of Grace– it’s a great free read!
