Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary Parish in Morris hosts Tony Cherniawski, shroud historian, who will display a photographic exhibit and give presentations on the Holy Shroud of Turin Monday-Wednesday, Sept. 18-20, at 7 p.m.
The Holy Shroud, housed at the Cathedral in Turin, Italy, is an ancient 14-foot cloth that has long been revered by Catholics as an iconic relic. The linen shroud contains what looks like a photographically negative image of a man with similar wounds to those of the crucified Christ as described in the Gospel accounts told by Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.
The image on the shroud has no known imitation. Modern science has completed hundreds of thousands of hours of intense research on the shroud. It is, in fact, the single most studied artifact in human history.
Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary is located at 207 East 3rd Street, Morris. For more information call the parish at 320-589-3003.
