Just in time for the beginning of Lent…the Diocese of Saginaw is honored to host the Shroud of Turin Replica Exhibit, which is on loan from the Marytown Franciscan community in Illinois. 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.
