How It All Started
Hi, I’m Steve Kerekes, the founder of scapulars.com®. It is my intention, hope and prayer to help revive the scapular tradition. I believe that every Catholic in the world should be wearing one! Here’s the problem: Today’s scapulars are cheap, poorly stitched, uncomfortable, breakable and pathetic.
The whole point of a scapular is that you wear it for the rest of your life. So even though cheaply made scapulars are a good way to get more people vested, what kind of shield is that? They just don’t cut it as a lifelong sign of devotion and protection.
Not to mention how scratchy and uncomfortable most scapulars are. Mary’s promises are meant to comfort you, not the opposite. That’s why our scapulars are made with super-strong paracord and the softest Australian merino wool. Because an unbroken promise deserves an unbreakable scapular!
Family is very important to us!
That’s why we’re happy to give discounts to large orders for families! (10% off orders of 5 or more scapulars, and 20% off orders of 10 or more!
You Buy One, We Give Back
Our goal with scapulars.com® was not just to create the most durable and comfortable scapular ever made (though we’re clearly proud of that feat). We exist to share the devotion of the brown scapular so as to place all Catholics under the protection of Our Lady.
That’s why we’re making it our mission to give scapulars away to those who need them most. For every scapular purchased on our site, we give to an elderly person in need.
We also set aside funds to provide free scapulars to religious and to young people on pilgrimage. We want them to know that they are never alone—that their heavenly Mother is always right beside them, and their brothers and sisters are praying for them.
In the end, we want every Catholic in the world to be clothed in the brown scapular and under the protection of the Blessed Virgin!
