First Exhibit News

The National Shroud of Turin Exhibit is proud to announce our first "mini" exhibit  — 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 it to the National Shroud of Turin Exhibit for display at the CIC for six months starting on March 13, 2023. CIC is located at 1501 K St. NW, Washington D.C. 20005.

On March 14 at the National Catholic Prayer Breakfast in Washington, D.C., Shroud posters promoting the CIC exhibit will be distributed in gift bags to 1,000 attendees. Also, the National Shroud of Turin Exhibit has a booth at the Breakfast to display the Shroud posters. These posters have proven to be extremely popular because it explains the markings on the Shroud that mirror the gospel accounts of Christ's suffering.

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