    Nora wrote: As a representative of the National Shroud of Turin Exhibit, I was privileged to join the pilgrimage to Lisbon to participate in World Youth Day 2023.  I met my colleagues, Dr. Cheryl White, and Fr. Andrew Dalton, in Lisbon to present two catechesis sessions on “The Worlds’ Greatest Mystery: The Shroud of Turin”.   We spoke at the Forum Lisboa (a civic auditorium in downtown Lisbon).  Eager young adults from all over the world found their way to this obscure location to learn more about the Shroud.  Read more..

     

    Three team members from the National Shroud of Turin Exhibit (NSTE) - Dr. Cheryl White, Nora Creech and Fr. Andrew Dalton, L.C - were among the 1.5 million attendees at World Youth Day - the Catholic festival held in Lisbon, Portugal from August 1-6. Pope Francis addressed the massive crowd with pilgrims from every country in world. Cheryl, Nora and Fr. Dalton represented NSTE with two, 3-hour presentations and one 90-minute talk about the Shroud of Turin to a combined audience of 1,400 people.

    The National Shroud of Turin Exhibit is proud to announce that our first "mini" exhibit is a life-sized replica of the Shroud of Turin on display at the Catholic Information Center (CIC) in downtown Washington D.C. The replica was gifted from the International Center for Sindonology in Turin, Italy — the authorities who are responsible for the daily care of the Shroud of Turin — to the Museum of the Bible in Washington, D.C. Then, the Museum loaned the replica to the National Shroud of Turin Exhibit, and it will be on display at CIC for six months starting on March 13, 2023. CIC is located at 1501 K St. NW, Washington D.C. 20005. cicdc.org

    The leaders of the National Shroud of Turin Exhibit are pleased about this four-way collaboration — a great start to help us fulfill our mission to produce a permanent National Shroud of Turin Exhibit. 

    On March 14, at the National Catholic Prayer Breakfast the National Shroud of Turin Exhibit will host an exhibit booth and also distribute 1,000 Shroud posters in the attendee gift bags to promote the Shroud replica and the four-way collaboration that made it possible. The poster explains the markings on the Shroud that mirror the Gospel accounts of the suffering endured by Jesus Christ.
