National Shroud of Turin Replica Exhibit

Center for Ministry

Saginaw exhibit is at the diocesan Center for Ministry, 5802 Weiss St., Saginaw. See below for Ithaca exhibit details. 

We are honored to host the Shroud of Turin Replica Exhibit, which is on loan from the Marytown Franciscan community in Illinois. The Shroud has long been venerated by the faithful and is believed by many to be the burial cloth of Jesus.

After 36 years of exhaustive and medical, historical and scientific research, the Center for the Study of the Passion of the Christ and the Holy Shroud has developed a moving and informative exhibit. The centerpiece is a full length photographic image of the Shroud made by the Eastman Kodak Co. In addition, the mobile exhibit contains a large crucified corpus showing the wounds of Christ corresponding to the passion narrative in the Gospel accounts and the wounds shown on the Shroud. The exhibit contains 92 panels detailing the history and science of the Shroud.

There is no cost to view the exhibit, however, donations are welcome.
