Thank you so much for your interest in seeing the life-size replica of the Shroud of Turin.
We are in the process of completing our exhibit with many life-size replicas of the instruments of torture, along with pictures of paintings down through the centuries of the Shroud, and explanations of all the scientific tests performed on the Shroud these last four decades.
As soon as the exhibit is open, we will inform the community. More information to come in the weeks ahead.
2018 presentation with Barrie Schwortz:
Barrie Schwortz was the Official Documenting Photographer for the Shroud of Turin Research Project, the team that conducted the first in-depth scientific examination of the Shroud in 1978. Today, he plays an influential role in Shroud research and education as the editor and founder of the internationally recognized Shroud of Turin Website (www.shroud.com). Barrie visited St. John Berchmans on March 16-18, 2018 and shared with us the facts about the Shroud of Turin, an artifact that is thousands of years old bearing the image of a crucified man! The world renowned expert and highly sought after speaker Barrie Schwortz gave a lecture that was inspiring and one that touched our hearts with the amazing scientific findings and history of this artifact!
