From the Catholic News Herald connecting Catholics in Western North Carolina, dated August 3, 2022:
ELKIN — If you’ve ever wanted to view the Shroud of Turin – a burial cloth featuring the emblazoned image of a crucified man that many believe to be Jesus Christ – the “Man of the Shroud” exhibit coming to the Yadkin Valley Heritage & Trails Visitor Center Aug. 14-21 is a must-see.
Free and open to the public, the “Man of the Shroud” exhibit presents the results of a comprehensive scientific, historical and forensic study of the famed shroud, the most scientifically studied and debated religious icon in history.
The Catholic Church does not formally endorse or reject the authenticity of the Shroud of Turin, but Pope Francis has called it an “icon of a man scourged and crucified.”
Just 46 scenic minutes by car from downtown Winston Salem.
