We give thanks for the remarkable gift of being able to display many of the finest items from the collection of The Museum of the Holy Shroud, which arrived at the Cathedral in February, one of the largest collections of Shroud artifacts and artworks known to exist in the world.
Our collection includes some beautiful paintings, etchings, engravings, manuscripts, medals, coins, and books – and many sacred relics as well, including pieces of the Holy Shroud. Surely this rare collection is a gift which enables all of us in the broader community to contemplate the great mystery of Easter, and celebrate His Resurrection with a renewed fervor.
The Grand Opening of the Museum of the Holy Shroud was a wonderful community event (Saturday, May 4, 2019 photos below).
