St Thomas the Apostle Parish is happy to welcome the Exhibit on the Shroud of Turin “Who is the Man of the Shroud?” in collaboration with the Research Group Othonia International, whose goal is to contribute to the preservation, promotion, and spread of knowledge about the Shroud. We are very blessed at St Thomas Parish to be able to have such an important replica of the Shroud! The replica of the Shroud and the entire Exhibit that goes into most of the scientific research done on the Shroud will be available to the Parish and public beginning October 7th Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary.

The Shroud of Jesus connects us to Him and is the most crucial point of Christ’s work of saving us. As we see the Shroud, we see a man crucified, but the Shroud also points to the resurrection of the same body! It proclaims His death and Resurrection and fills us with hope as we await His return in glory!

Fr Joseph Spence, FFM, will be joining us from Rome to speak about the shroud and the many mysteries that are hidden in its fibers. Hope you can come to any of these events! Bring a friend!

Fr Joseph Spence, FFM, teaches two courses on the Shroud of Turin, as well as some other courses in Spiritual Theology, at the Pontifical Athenaeum Regina Apostolorum (Rome).
