We welcomed many visitors to the Cathedral to experience the incredible Shroud of Turin exhibition which was on display here from 23rd May to 4th June 2017,
“The Shroud of Turin exhibition is a travelling exhibition which takes life sized replicas of the Shroud of Turin to different venues. The actual Shroud is housed in the Cathedral of the Italian city of Turin and because of its extraordinary nature, it is the subject of many books and documentaries. The Shroud of Turin exhibition hopes to give visitors a chance to understand more about the mysteries of the Shroud.”
