CIC is honored to have Fr. Robert Spitzer provide a special and fascinating presentation on the scientific mysteries of the Shroud of Turin. This presentation will explain compelling scientific data behind the Shroud. It will highlight theological insights addressing how science intersects with faith and hope – shedding light on why millions of people believe the Shroud of Turin is the burial cloth of Jesus Christ.

A life-sized Shroud of Turin replica is on display, sponsored by the National Shroud of Turin Exhibit, which plans to produce a permanent Shroud of Turin Exhibit in Washington, D.C. Complimentary posters of the Shroud will be distributed that explain the markings on the Shroud.

This event is co-sponsored with The National Shroud of Turin Exhibit.

*CIC will have books authored by Fr. Spitzer for sale before and after the event.
