The Shroud of Turin is a centuries-old linen cloth which bears the image of a crucified man, a man that millions believe to be Jesus Christ. Our Lady of Perpetual Help Parish, Morton, has invited a speaker who has spent 30 years studying the shroud in all its aspects. He will display a life-size replica of the shroud and a two-foot statue that shows the position in which the body of Jesus was when he was wrapped in the burial cloth in order to be placed in the tomb.
Massimo Paris of Broomall was born and raised in Rome, Italy. For three decades he has studied, conducted research and visited sites related to the shroud. He went to Turin, Italy for the shroud’s exhibition in 2000 and venerated it personally.
There is no entrance fee for the presentation; participants may make a free-will donation.

Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
