Coming to St. Rita's
"35 Years of Shroud Science: A Personal Perspective"

This 90 minute presentation will take you behind the scenes of our 1978 scientific examination of the cloth, the first and only in-depth scientific examination ever performed on the Shroud. Mr. Schwortz will then discuss the personal impact the Shroud has had on his life and explain why a Jewish man like him is so involved with such an important Christian relic.
