Brown Scapular ?

Hi, I have a Brown Scapular, my priest hasn’t had chance to do the ceremony for it yet, I was wondering is it sin to start wearing it before the ceremony or is it ok ?

No, it’s not a sin, and yes you can begin wearing it. You can get enrolled at a time suitable for both of you.

Read this official catechesis of the Brown Scapular, issued by both families of the Carmelite Order.

Thank you for your help. I am not the sort of person to want to keep pestering so a suitable time for the Fr would be better.
