Below is information about reserving the Man of the Shroud exhibit (free) for your organization.
Spirit Catholic Radio presents a brand-new traveling exhibit The Man of the Shroud, a visual display of the power, history and science behind the Shroud of Turin. This powerful exhibit features beautifully-designed panels that will raise the questions, “Could the Shroud be the most important archaeological artifact ever found?” and Does it provide clues to what happened during the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus?” Spirit Catholic Radio is making this exhibit available to parishes and organizations to borrow at no cost.
