Shroud of Turin Print

February 27th, 2015

We are extremely grateful to the anonymous donor who has made it possible for St. Patrick’s parishioners and visitors to view an exact photographic duplicate of the 14 foot long Shroud of Turin. The exhibit, along with printed information of the Shroud, will remain on display in the church throughout Lent.

The Shroud of Turin will go on exhibit April 19 through June 24, 2015 in the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist in Turin, Italy. Presently, over 400,000 of the free reservations have been made to view the Shroud.

You can view more information about the shroud here.
