Come and Visit the Relics of St. Simon Stock on his 750th anniversary!




2015 is the 750th anniversary of the death of St Simon Stock, why not come and learn more about this world famous saint - his relics are currently located in the Relic Chapel at Aylesford. 


Tradition states that on July 16, 1251, he had his famous vision of Our Lady  bringing the brown scapular to him with the following words, which are preserved in a 14th-century narrative: “This will be for you and for all Carmelites the privilege, that he who dies in this will not suffer eternal fire.” Thus, popular devotion to Saint Simon Stock is usually associated with devotion to Our Lady of Mount Carmel and the Brown Scapular (worn by millions of Catholics the world over.

The visions and messages at Fatima also encouraged the wearing of the Brown Scapular. In the final Fátima appearance on October 13, 1917 the Virgin Mary had a brown scapular in one hand and a rosary in the other.
