Jim Bertrand – M. Ed. & Shroud Expert
Mr. Bertrand is Nebraska’s local Shroud expert speaker and has been presenting on the Shroud for several years. Along with his powerful presentation, he brings with him a full-size replica of the Holy Shroud. We encourage parishes reserving the Man of the Shroud exhibit throughout the year to check his availability (details below).

 

Dr. John Jackson, PhD –  Sept. 12 & 13 in Lincoln & Omaha Only!
Dr. John Jackson, a PhD in physics, together with his wife, Rebecca, leads the team of scientific studies at the Turin Shroud Center of Colorado. In addition to conducting Shroud research, he has taught at the university level for many years . In 1978, when interest in the Shroud was at its height, Dr. Jackson led a 40-person team of international scientists to Turin where they, under the auspices of the Shroud of Turin Research Project (STURP), examined the Shroud for nearly a week. No one since that time has secured such full scientific research access to the cloth. See Dr. Jackson’s talk at St. Robert Bellarmine in Omaha on Saturday, Sept. 12 or in Lincoln at St. Thomas Aquinas on Sunday Sept. 13.

Below is information about reserving the Man of the Shroud exhibit (free) for your parish. Please note, this is different than requesting to be part of our Exhibit Tour above.  Reservation dates will not be available June-September 2020 as the exhibit goes on tour.

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.
