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.

What is included in the exhibit?

Is the actual Shroud included in the exhibit? The “true” Shroud is kept in a climate-controlled container at the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist in Turin, Italy, and is rarely available for viewing to the public. However, there are replicas available for viewing. Jim Bertrand in Lincoln has a replica which he brings to his presentations.
