Shroud of Turin Presentation
December 2, 2011
|Barrie Schwortz is interviewed about his research team's work.|
Friday, December 9 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. in St. Robert room
Next Friday, December 9, the parish will receive a special visit by photographer and researcher, Barrie Schwortz. Schwortz was the official documenting photographer for the Shroud of Turin Research Project (STURP), that a team of professionals completed in 1978. The shroud is the cloth that is believed to have been what Christ was wrapped in immediately following his crucifixion. The research team's work was the very first scientific examination of the shroud.
Since the project, Barrie Schwortz has appeared in several programs and documentaries covering information and investigations on the Shroud of Turin. Networks that have covered these documentaries include the History Channel, Discovery Channel, Learning Channel, National Geographic Channel and more.
Come to this hands-on presentation, as Barrie Schwortz shares what his research has uncovered along with some of his breathtaking photographs. Plus, he will bring with him replicas of materials and items that would have been found during the passion and crucifixion of our Lord.
A special question and answer portion will also take place following the end of the presentation.
See a special bulletin insert this weekend with more information about Barrie and his documentary appearances.
