imageKaren Dudek, a Detroit Catholic Issues Examiner, a frequent contributor to the Examiner writes that a Shroud of Turin exhibit is traveling across the Midwest: :

Through local Knights of Columbus counsels, a photographic exhibit of the Shroud of Turin, believed to be the burial shroud of Jesus, was on display at St. Mary of the Hills Catholic Church on Saturday and Sunday, May 12-13 in Rochester Hills.

An estimated 700 people, some coming from as far as Detroit, Taylor and Clawson, came to see the photographic reproduction of the piece of linen cloth that is traveling through the Midwest.

Said one attendee who had been to Turin to see the true Shroud, “It’s really nice to get a good close-up look at the model… in Turin you have to stand about 20 feet away.”

Members of the Church have venerated the Shroud of Turin for centuries.  According to John Hundiak, District Deputy of the Knights of Columbus, “Several Popes have stated that the Shroud is an extraordinary and mysterious image and is worthy of our Catholic interests.”

The next stop for the Shroud is Indian River, Michigan at The Cross in the Woods Shrine, May 18-24.
